VANCOUVER — Lundin Mining Corp. says an employee died Monday at its Neves-Corvo mine in Portugal.

The Vancouver-based mining company says the employee, who was operating a piece of equipment underground, was “tragically involved in a fall of ground that resulted in a fatal accident.”

The company says operations at the mine have been temporarily suspended out of respect.

It says it has notified authorities in Portugal and is fully co-operating with their investigation.

Lundin says it will provide additional information as appropriate.

The mining company primarily produces copper, zinc, gold and nickel through its operations in multiple countries.
