Lundin Mining reports a fatality at its Neves-Corvo mine in Portugal.
The miner said an employee while operating a piece of equipment underground was involved in a fall of ground that resulted in a fatal accident. It added that it notified authorities in Portugal and is cooperating with an investigation.
Operations at the mine have been temporarily suspended, Lundin said.
“Our sincere thoughts and support are with our colleague’s family and coworkers during this difficult time,” said Chief Executive Jack Lundin.
