The former chief executive of Pike River Coal Ltd entered not guilty pleas to 12 charges he faces under the HSE Act (MBIE, 25 October).

VLI Drilling Pty

The Australian-based contractor at the Pike River coal mine was fined $46,800 on three charges under the HSE Act after three of its employees using its drill rig were among the 29 men killed in the mine explosion. It had earlier pleaded guilty to the charges, which related to the company's drill rig being operated without electrical inspections being carried out, or being operated while the methane sensors were not fully functional or properly calibrated (New Zealand Herald, 26 October).
