A miner has died while working underground at a central Queensland coal mine.

The miner, who hasn't been named, was found collapsed at the Anglo American Grasstree mine, near Middlemount, northwest of Rockhampton.

Attempts by staff to revive the worker both underground and on the surface were unsuccessful, the mining company said in a statement on Wednesday.

Anglo American, the state's mining inspector and police are all investigating the death and counselling has been offered to the dead worker's family and colleagues.
