Few claims of coal seam gas illness: Qld govt

There have been reports of many people in CSG drilling areas west of Brisbane suffering nosebleeds, sore eyes, nausea, vomiting, rashes and diarrhoea.

 Authorities are monitoring patient presentations at Tara, Miles and Chinchilla hospitals but the state government says it has reports of only two cases linked to CSG mining.

"All we can find... are presentations from two people who claim to be affected by coal seam gas," said Health Minister Lawrence Springborg.

"At the moment, all I've got are suggestions and anecdotes."

Mr Springborg urged people to go to their local hospitals
