A miner attached to the Troy Resources mining operations at Karouni, Region Seven (Cuyuni-Mazaruni) was this morning killed after the mining pit in which he was working collapsed.
Dead is Ryan Taylor of Albert Street, Alberttown, Georgetown.
Based on reports received, Taylor and a few other miners were working in the pit at about 3:00h when it collapsed thus completely covering him. An alarm was raised but Taylor’s lifeless body was subsequently pulled.
A team from the Geology and Mines Commission (GGMC) is expected to travel to the area to conduct their investigations.
