Golden Star Resources has explained that initial investigations into circumstances leading to the death of two of its employees at the Prestea Underground Mine suggest they succumbed to smoke inhalation sickness following exposure to blasting gasses.
Two employees of the mining company died on December 29, 2017 after they had closed from work and had gone home.
According to a statement issued by Vice President, Investor Relations and Corporate Affairs Katharine Sutton of Golden Star Resources the company, after the death was reported, suspended operations at the Prestea Underground mine to allow for the initial investigation of the incident.
The statement however said the mine resumed full operation as of January 1, 2018.
