“We are monitoring the situation and are in close contact with Aurizon, the network operator,” Xstrata said.
Xstrata's 6Mt/y Rolleston thermal coal mine ships coal out of Gladstone via the rail system.
A spokeswoman for the company added that coal production in Queensland had not been materially affected though.
Blackwater is the largest of four coal systems and carries the second highest tonnage on Aurizon’s network, according to Aurizon.
The system links mines to the two export terminals at the port, RG Tanna and Barney Point.
Blackwater also services an alumina refinery in Queensland owned by Rio Tinto Alcan, Aurizon said.
