Lumwana miner crushed to death

A worker was killed on Monday at Zambia’s Lumwana copper mine run by Equinox Minerals but the company was more concerned about production and said no impact was seen on production.

The company said on Tuesday: “Lumwana Mining Company regrets to announce that a fatal accident occurred at the Lumwana mine on the morning of 25th April, when a contractor employee working for Avantech was struck by a grader,” the mine said in a statement.

Spokesman Nathan Chishimba told Reuters the incident would “not materially impact production.”
