In what the union is describing as an “escalating” crisis, a Moranbah miner is the 20th victim of black lung disease.

It's understood this miner worked at the Moranbah North Colliery underground mine. The diagnosis was confirmed on Monday, March 6.

The case has been referred to the Department of Natural Resources and Mines. It's less than two weeks after a Central Queensland miner was diagnosed.

The CFMEU Mining and Energy Division said the 20th confirmed case of Black Lung disease highlighted the need for urgent industry action to deliver adequate compensation and support to workers and families affected by the deadly disease.
