PERTH (miningweekly.com) – Three miners have been injured at uranium producer Paladin Energy’s Langer Heinrich mine, in Namibia, following a “serious electrical incident”.

The miner said on Thursday that two of the workers received significant burns while a third worker suffered smoke inhalation. He has been discharged from hospital, but a more seriously injured colleague has been flown to South Africa for treatment.

Paladin said that a full investigation into the incident was under way.

The uranium miner is currently looking for an investment partner in the Langer Heinrich operation, which produces at a rate of 5.2-million pounds a year.
