Toronto-listed First Quantum on Thursday announced that a worker at its Trident operation, in Zambia, had died, following a traffic accident in the Sentinel openpit.

The accident involved a dump truck and light vehicle, the mining company said. One other person was severely injured and medically evacuated.

Operations in the pit have been temporarily suspended until deemed that operations can resume safely.

“I would like to extend my deepest sympathies to the family of our colleague. We are committed to providing all necessary support for both our employees' families and colleagues during this difficult time. This is a tragic incident which we are profoundly saddened by,” said CEO Tristan Pascall.

“The safety and health of our workforce is our top priority and we are committed to improve our practices from this incident.”

Trident has advised the relevant local authorities and will assist the Mine Safety Department in their investigations. An internal investigation into the accident is already under way
