Information:

On the nightshift of Friday/Saturday, 18/19 May 2001, a fatality occurred at a large open pit mining operation in the northern Goldfields of Western Australia. A tracked bulldozer operator suffered fatal injuries after the dozer he was operating went over the edge of the pit and fell down a rill extending over some 90 – 100 vertical metres. The operator appears to have been thrown from the cab of the dozer, as his body was located some 15 – 20 metres up the rill, above the final position of the machine.
