Workplace accident at northwestern B.C. gold mine leaves one worker dead

BY The Canadian Press, Aug 5, 2020 1:12 PM - REPORT AN ERRORLAST UPDATED ON Aug 5, 2020 8:13 PM

A worker has been killed at a gold mine in northwestern BC.

Vancouver-based Pretium Resources says the unnamed man was doing maintenance work Friday at the surface of the mine northwest of Stewart when he was severely injured.

The company says he was treated immediately by medics at the mine and then transported to hospital in Terrace, where he died Sunday.

Pretium says it is co-operating with an outside investigation and will conduct its own probe, but its first concern is to support the victim's family and friends, and other workers at the mine.
