- Operations at Griffin's Caijiaying mine have been suspended after an employee of the mining contractor died while underground.

Operations were voluntarily suspended by the company pending an internal investigation and an external examination by the Chinese safety authorities.

The company said: "The safety of the Caijiaying mine site remains a priority for all parties concerned. The company's thoughts and concerns rest with the deceased and their families. In the interim, sufficient stockpiles of ore remain available aboveground to continue operating the processing facilities for a minimum of 2 months at the current throughput rates."
