Miner injured at Hoyle Pond

The Ontario Ministry of Labour is investigating an incident where a miner was injured underground at Goldcorp’s Hoyle Pond Mine this morning. Paramedics and firefighters were dispatched to the mine site just before nine oclock in response to reports that a man was seriously injured and bleeding heavily. First-aiders and mine rescue workers tended to the man at the scene of the accident and as he was being transported up the ramp, to the waiting ambulance. An ambulance sped away from the mine gate at approximately 9:30 a.m. to bring the patient to Timmins and District Hospital. No other information has been released.
