Partial underground mining has resumed at the New Afton mine southwest of Kamloops following a mudslide that killed one worker and injured two others.
Contract driller Ray Rosenberg, a 35-year-old father of four, was killed in the very early morning hours of Feb. 2.
The mud-rush incident, which involved a sudden influx of waterlogged material into the shallow mine working area under the mine's Lift 1 cave, occurred at 1:40 a.m. that morning.
Two other workers suffered non-life-threatening injuries.
"As we move forward, our primary focus remains on the health, safety and well-being of our employees, contractors and their families and we will continue to provide counselling and support for them," New Gold president and CEO Renaud Adams said in a statement.
The company resumed surface operations on Feb. 5 and has now continued ore extraction operations in a limited capacity.
Investigators from the Ministry of Energy, Mines and Low Carbon Innovation's mine investigation unit are still looking into the incident.
The area where the mudslide occurred remains closed.
A GoFundMe campaign created to support the family of Rosenberg had raised more than $122,000 as of Feb. 9.
