Mine truck gets makeover for worthy cause

A MINE near Moranbah has been given a splash of colour in support of LGBTI+ awareness.

BHP Mitsui Coal has painted one of its Poitrel Mine truck trays teal in honour of BHP's LGBTI+ ally network, Jasper.

The idea came to Mick Clutterbuck, a member of the engineering team, after he participated in an LGBTI+ awareness session on site.

The truck, aptly named Jasper, has been on site for several days now and has attracted a lot of attention.

Poitrel Mine general manager Sonia Winter has praised the idea, which she said would be a constant reminder to everyone on site about embracing diversity and respectful behaviours.
