Mine equipment fire
October 5, 2014 - 1:00pm PST
On October 4th, around 4am, a fire broke out on #2 overland conveyor. This belt runs from HW to the mill. The fire destroyed some sections of the belt. There were problems at first with the sprinkler system. After manually turning on Sprinkler, the majority of the fire was contained. This was a serious incident, but there were no casualties.
The SERT team, led by Tony Robson, donned fire fighting equipment and did an excellent job of clearing the area of any further threat of fire.
Lynx crusher has been hastily started up in order to accept trucks hauling ore from HW to the Mill.
