RENO, Nev. (775 Times, NV Globe) – In an incident in an underground mine in northeastern Nevada, one miner perished and another was hurt, according to a report released on Tuesday by Nevada Gold Mines.
According to the business, the worker who was hurt in the accident in Eureka County on Monday received medical attention there before being released. No names have been made public.
The accident included hand tools at the Goldstrike Underground facility, roughly 25 miles (40 kilometers) north of Carlin, according to the U.S. Mine Safety and Health Administration on Tuesday, but no other information has been provided.
“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.
Nearly a year ago, on February 14, at NGM’s Cortez Underground Mine, a truck driver was killed in a collision, marking Nevada’s final hardrock mining death.
