Roger Browne 2005

19/09/2005 - Dawson Open Cut Mine - Fall

On September 19, 2005, contractor Roger Bruce Browne, 41 was killed after he fell more than 50m at the Dawson Mine. He was found the following day at 10.30am after his partner contacted the mine repeatedly to say he had never come home. 

A search was launched for Mr Browne after he did not return home from the mine, run by Anglo Coal Australia. Part of Mr Browne's job was to design changes to one of the higher walls at the mine site.

A Coroner's Inquiry failed to say how Mr Browne came to fall from the wall. 

This accident claimed the life of Roger Browne
