Central Hunter local area commander Superintendent Garry O’Dell said police were looking at several strategies and had not yet decided which one would be used in the recovery operation.

He said it was vital to ensure the area was safe for the team that retrieved the bodies,and initial investigations had determined there was a significant amount of coal and machinery in their path.

He alsosaid the time it took to travel underground to the site had also slowed the recovery process.

Workers have been arriving at the site this afternoonand have been briefed by management.

There is no indication about when work will resume at the mine.
