      Worker killed in accident at Stillwater's Nye mine

      November 1, 2011

      BILLINGS - Stillwater Mining Company says an employee has died after an accident at its operation near Nye Monday afternoon.

      A mine spokesman says it happened at three and representatives from the mine safety and health administration are investigating.

      The press release says that the accident occurred while the person was working on the 3800 level of the mine.

      The spokesman says incident has nothing to do with evacuations that took place two weeks ago due to malfunctioning equipment causing smoke in the mine.

      The night shift has been cancelled as the investigation continues. Officials would not give any more details at this time. The last time a deadly accident occurred at the mine was in 2005.

      Stillwater Mine produces platinum and palladium group metals and employs about 13,000 people.
