One worker died and another was injured in an incident at a coal mine operated by Brazilian company Vale, in Moatize, central Mozambique, which occurred on the 6th of this month, but which was only disclosed by the company on Friday.
In a statement sent to Lusa, Vale revealed that the victim worked for Leebert Belting, a company that provides services at the Moatize coal mine, and died while carrying maintenance work on a coal conveyor belt, without giving further details.
A second worker, injured in the same accident, was hospitalised, but is now recovering at home.
“Leebert provided all necessary assistance to workers, and Vale is in contact with the victims’ families,” the company statement reads.
