No injuries reported after loose rock fell underground at the Kensington Mine Sunday, damaging a water line.
Coeur d’Alene Mines Vice President Wendy Yang says crews were doing routine maintenance in a main access drift – stabilizing an excavation by bolting rock – when some of the loose rock fell. No one was trapped and both the primary and secondary access routes remained open.
Yang says the water line has since been repaired, and normal operations were not disrupted.
