ĐẮK NÔNG — Nguyễn Ngọc Minh, head of the People’s Committee of Tuy Đức District in Đắk Nông Province said that an explosion at a local quarry led to four casualities.

At about 6am, Vượng Phát Co Ltd conducted an explosion to exploit rocks at a quarry in sub-zone 1469 in Tuy Đức District’s Quảng Trực Commune.

Phan Văn Hoán, 31, in Đắk Mil District, and another man, only known as Trung, were killed. Two other men were seriously injured and were admitted to Bù Gia Mập General Hospital in Bình Phước Province for treatment.

Dương Danh Quế, head of Tuy Đức District’s Police Department, said the police asked the provincial authority to examine the quarry to make sure there was no mine left.

Vượng Phát Co Ltd was granted a licence for mine exploitation five months ago.

The case is under investigation. — VNS
