First Mine Death of 2005

MSHA reports that a miner died Tuesday in a powered haulage accident at the Holcim (US) Incorporated Artesia Quarry & Mill, a crushed limestone operation in Stone County, Miss. No further details were immediately available. The pit and plant employ about 100 people. Flammable and combustible waste are used to produce cement. MSHA last inspected the facility in August.

Holcim is one of the world's largest cement producers.
