On June 14, 2015 a Laborer was injured at Chalk Hills Quarry, a surface mine, while shrink wrapping pallets of 50 pound bags of gypsum using a propane torch. A shift supervisor, who had been with the worker 15 minutes earlier, found him struggling to stand and observed significant burns to his left arm and left side of his torso. He was in a state of confusion and shock. The propane torch the worker had been using was found on the ground and was still on. The Laborer was taken to a burn unit for advanced treatment and returned home on July 22, 2015 where he died six days later. The cause of death was attributed to mucormycosis as a result of burns.
