A BHP spokeswoman said the quake resulted in a power outage and the subsequent loss of communication with members of Nick West Leinster’s underground team.

“All team members are safe, unharmed and responsible,” she said.

“The safety of our people and operations is supported by our strong operating systems, technical control procedures and the dedication and hard work of our teams.

“Nothing is more important than the safety of our people. In line with our usual processes, operations will resume once safety testing is complete.”
