LAS VEGAS, Nev. (702 Times, NV Globe) –  According to Nevada Gold Mines, one worker was killed and another was injured in an accident in an underground mine in northeast Nevada on Tuesday.

The worker who was hurt in the mishap in Eureka County on Monday was treated and released from a local hospital, according to the firm. There have been no names disclosed.

The US Mine Safety and Health Administration stated Tuesday that the accident included hand tools at the Goldstrike Underground facility, which is located about 25 miles (40 kilometers) north of Carlin, but no further information were disclosed.

“Our thoughts and prayers are with the families, friends and coworkers of the employees involved,” the company said in a statement. It has more than 7,000 employees in Nevada.
