Rio Tinto to Ban Booze at Argyle Diamond Site

08 july 2014

Mining giant Rio Tinto will ban alcohol at its Argyle Diamond Mine site in north Western Australia as its workers shift to underground mining, Rapaport reported citing Australian Associated Press.
Rio said it plans to "transition" to an alcohol-free site, but did not specify when this would occur.
"Argyle has moved into a new era of complex underground mining and transitioning to a dry camp is an important part of its future operating model," Shane Johnson, managing director of Argyle Diamonds said in a statement.
It is understood that Rio Tinto does not plan to introduce the ban at other mine sites at this stage.
Many mine sites around the country have a "wet mess" where workers can purchase alcohol after their shift, but some mines have closed the facilities in recent years due to safety concerns.
In May two men died after a 28-year-old truck driver fell and hit his head following an alleged drunken fight at AngloGold Ashanti's Tropicana mine in Western Australia.
The man alleged to have thrown the punch, a 29-year-old father of three, was understood to have taken his own life.
WA Police are preparing reports on both deaths for the state coroner while the Department of Mines and Petroleum is holding a separate investigation that is believed to be looking, in part, at rules around alcohol consumption at Tropicana's wet mess.
