Great Panther contractor employee dies at San Ignacio

2019-11-09 02:13 ET - News Release

Mr. Jeffrey Mason reports


Great Panther Mining Ltd. deeply regrets a fatal accident involving a contractor's employee that occurred in the afternoon of Nov. 8, 2019, due to an isolated rockfall at the San Ignacio underground mine, which forms part of the Guanajuato mine complex in Mexico.

The employee's family and appropriate government and local authorities have been notified, and an investigation into the accident has been initiated to determine the cause. Operations at the area of the accident have been temporarily suspended. While the area where the accident occurred has been closed for investigation, the rest of the San Ignacio mine producing areas remain unaffected.

"We are deeply saddened by the loss of one of our colleagues, and our thoughts and prayers are with his family and friends," stated Jeffrey Mason, interim president and chief executive officer. "We will commit all available resources to determine the cause of this accident so that we can work to prevent such a tragedy from occurring again. Any necessary steps to prevent the recurrence of such accidents will be taken immediately."

Great Panther is committed to providing a safe work environment by eliminating or minimizing identified safety and health hazards. Consequently, safety procedures are being reviewed and reinforced to ensure safety remains the top priority across all operations.
