Recently, Tongren area has been under heavy rainfall for several days. In accordance with the requirements of the local government's rainstorm prevention instructions, Lijiashan barite mine immediately carried out the investigation of potential safety hazards in the mine and surrounding areas, and stopped the surface and underground operations during the rainy period, and the on-site operation could only be resumed after the rain stopped to meet the safety production requirements.
During the safety inspection, the management personnel of the project department found a mud pit around the mining area due to rain erosion. In order to protect the safety of villagers, property and materials, the site immediately decided to fence with steel pipe and metal mesh to prevent people and livestock from falling into the mine. The site staff completed the fence construction overnight to protect the property safety of villagers.
