Goldcorp suspends Musselwhite mine in Canada after death
TORONTO (Reuters) - Goldcorp Inc, the world's most valuable gold miner, said on Thursday operations at its Musselwhite mine in northern Ontario were suspended after a scoop operator working underground was killed.
An unexpected fall of rock accident occurred early on Wednesday morning, the Vancouver-based company said, completely covering the scoop with material and leading to a fatal injury.
Operations will remain suspended until authorities complete their investigation, Goldcorp said.
