Inspector visited the mine but has issued no orders.
The Ontario labour ministry is conducting an investigation into the weekend death of an employee at Goldcorp’s Musselwhite Mine, 500 kilometres north of Thunder Bay.
A spokesperson said the ministry was notified on Saturday, Feb. 2 that a worker had been found unresponsive at the mine site.
A ministry inspector travelled to the fly-in, fly-out gold mine on Monday but issued no orders to the company.
According to the spokesperson, the investigation has not been completed.
Musselwhite Mine went into commercial production in 1997 and is one of the country’s largest gold mines.
The deposit has gold reserves (proven and probable) of 1.85 million ounces and another 310,000 ounces in the resources (measured and indicated) category, as well as 1.17 million ounces in the inferred resources category.
