Lake Shore Gold's mine rescue team is heading to a provincial competition.
The team of people from the company's Bell Creek and Timmins West sites won the local mine rescue competition held May 2 to 6.
"Competing teams had to deal with scenarios that included multiple emergencies in both the underground and on surface including mechanical failures, fire and various other challenges," explained Marcel Cardinal, Lake Shore Gold's director of environmental and sustainability.
"The teams competed over the days with technicians showing their skills relating to breathing apparatuses and other devices."
The team now moves on to the provincials in Sudbury at Creighton Mine from June 6 to 10.
