Information:

A contract maintenance crew was carrying out repairs to a leach tank in a gold processing plant and were re-sheeting the inside of the tank. An apprentice boilermaker was relocating the mobile scaffolding within the leach tank when a piece of rust 600mm long by 300mm wide fell 10 metres from the side or the tank hitting the apprentice. The apprentice received a cut to the left side of his head, a chipped front tooth and a cut lip. It also penetrated the apprentices hard hat resulting in a small laceration to the head.
