Two killed in accident involving a haul truck at Marigold Mine in Nevada
November 1, 2017

The Humboldt County, NV, Sheriff's Office and the U.S. Mine Safety and Health Administration are investigating a mining accident between a haul truck and a light vehicle that killed two people at the Marigold Mine on Oct. 31, the Elko Free Press reported.

Multiple injuries were also reported.

Marigold requested all available resources and Humboldt County Sheriff's Office, Humboldt General Hospital, the Winnemucca Police Department and the Nevada Highway Patrol all responded to the incident.

Operations at the mine have been suspended, and SSR-Mining, the company that is associated with the mine, has released a statement on the incident.

"We are deeply saddened by the loss of our colleagues, and our heartfelt sympathy goes out to their families," said Paul Benson, President and CEO of SSR Mining. "This incident is particularly upsetting as the health and safety of our employees is our highest priority. We are fully cooperating with the ongoing investigation to determine the cause of the accident and are offering support to our colleagues' families and our employees at the mine site."

SSR Mining, a Vancouver-based company, changed its name from Silver Standard Resources in August.

The last Nevada mining fatality happened last year in Nye County when a 60-year-old mechanic working on a front-end loader at Premier Magnesia Mine near Gabbs fell as he was getting off the machine, according to MSHA.

Still, MSHA reported that 2016 was the safest year ever for American miners. There were 22 deaths total, with 17 of those occurring in metal and nonmetal mines, and the remainder in coal mines.
