There has been a second incident involving a Detour Gold employee exposed to poisonous liquid.

The Ministry of Labour confirmed this past week another worker for Detour Gold at their Cochrane facility had come into contact with liquid cyanide, the same substance that killed Dennis Millette back in June of 2015.

A spokeswoman for the ministry says they were alerted of this second incident back on August 20th.

The spokeswoman also stated the ministry of labour’s investigation into the incident is currently ongoing.

She explained that once the investigation is complete a lawyer will then decide if there is enough evidence to lay charges under the Occupational Health and Safety Act.
