A contract worker was killed in an incident this morning at Suncor’s Millennium mine, just north of Fort McMurray.
Global News reports that the contractor was employed by AECON Mining and was working on “excavation activities” when they were killed. The age and gender of the victim is not being released.
Wood Buffalo RCMP sent out a release indicating they were assisting with the response saying they were called out at 9:40 a.m.
No other workers were injured and Suncor says they plan to make grief counselors available.
