Mine workers help with bushfire recovery effort


Workers at the Tahmoor Coal Mine, have chipped into help bushfire recovery efforts in the Wollondilly Shire.

They voted unanimously to support the Mayor’s Bushfire Relief Fund through a payroll donation and over three months manage to raise $15600.

That's in addition to the $250,000 donation made by SIMEC Group Executive Chairman and owner Sanjeev Gupta.

During the bushfires the mine was under threat for several hours.
