Just in case you ever forget what mining is about, here’s Reuters today:
TORONTO (Reuters) – Metanor Resources Inc (MTO.V) has suspended operations at its Bachelor Lake gold mine in the Canadian province of Quebec after an accident that left three miners missing.
The company said in a statement late on Saturday that it lost contact with two of its employees and an employee of contractor Montali after they were working late on Friday in a part of the mine that flooded.
Mining rescue and medical teams were dispatched while Metanor staff pumped water from the flooded portion of the mine. (Reporting by Jeffrey Hodgson; Editing by Michael Urquhart)
