Rock burst does no damage at bauxite mine

16 February 2010 (11:25)

Following a rock burst at UC RUSAL’s Severouralsk bauxite mine (SUBR), an ad hoc committee checked all the mines for compliance with the security regulations and found now serious damage. All mines are operating as usual at the moment, SUBR’s official representative Roman Lukichev informed UrBC.

The rock burst occurred at Krasnaya Shapochka mine at 8:40 AM on February 13, 2010. The mine was closed at the time, so no one was hurt. No damage was done to the nearby towns of Severouralsk, Kalya Tretiy Severniy, or Cheremukhovo, either.
