Operations remain suspended at the Channar iron-ore mine in Australia following a fatality late on Sunday, with the slack in production being picked up by other mines, majority owner Rio Tinto said on Tuesday.
The fatality involved a 32-year-old man who was working on a drill rig at the time, a spokeswoman for the Western Australia Department of Mines and Petroleum has said.
