All of the miners who were forced to seek safety in underground refuge areas after a fire broke out at a nickel mine have safely returned to the surface. The fire broke out in a piece of machinery called a load haul dump about 850 metres underground. Thirty-nine miners moved to refuge stations, while workers in another mine that’s connected by a tunnel also took refuge as a precaution.
