Vedanta suspends production at South African lead-zinc mine after worker death

Indian miner Vedanta Ltd. suspended production at the Deeps Shaft, part of its Black Mountain Mine lead-zinc operation in South Africa, following the death of a mining operator in a fall-of-ground incident, Mining Weekly reported Jan. 13.

The operator died from injuries after the Jan. 10 accident. The country's mineral resources and energy department has been informed, and authorities joined management and unions for an underground site inspection Jan. 11.

The Deeps Shaft produces copper, lead and zinc, with silver as a byproduct. It has an average annual output of 102,000 tonnes per annum of zinc equivalent. Production is scheduled to cease this year, according to Vedanta Zinc International's website.

Vedanta owns 69.6% of Black Mountain, and South Africa's Exxaro Resources Ltd. and the BMM Employee Share Ownership Plan hold 24.4% and 6%, respectively.
