A man has died at an Iron County mine, according to sheriff’s office.
The death occurred Saturday night at the Comstock/Mountain Lion Mine — west of Cedar City — and appears to be accidental, said Iron County sheriff’s Sgt. Charles Triplett. However, the sergeant could not immediately identify the man or say whether he was with the mining operation.
CML Metals actively mines iron ore from the Comstock/Mountain Lion Mine. The company could not immediately be reached for comment Sunday afternoon.
