Canada’s B2Gold says worker dies in flooding at Limon mine in Nicaragua

Friday, June 24, 2011

B2Gold Corp said a miner, who had remained unaccounted for in last week's flooding of its Limon mine in Nicaragua, had died.

The Canadian gold producer, which had to shut down underground operations at the mine last week because of heavy rains and mine flooding, had earlier said the worker had gone missing. The company, which also runs the La Libertad mine in Nicaragua, said underground operations at Limon will remain suspended during the accident investigation and rehabilitation.
