Just had the Ernest Henry underground nightshift crew called to the surface.

Our workmate and friend Jason (Tas) Braid who was injured in a rock fall 2 weeks ago has passed away this evening.

He was one of the good guys, wife and 2 small children and will be sadly missed by many.

Thank you

Very sorry to hear.
Whilst I did not know Tas, my heart goes out and thoughts are with his family.
Toad boy, please let us know if there is any plans for support events such as fund raising.
Always sad when anybody loses their life doing a job to support their family and with a view to a future!

That's no good Eric, I know the dangers of underground work, I was inducted for Ernest Henry back in the '90's and even after spending years working underground, you're always aware of the dangers, I hope his family is looked after well (I know they will be).

I'm not a religious person but I just did a silent prayer to St. Barbara.
