Detour Gold facing 14 charges in the death of Denis Millette

Detour Gold is facing 14 charges under the Occupational Health and Safety Act after one of its employees was killed by cyanide. Fifty-two-year-old Denis Millette died last year at Detour’s Cochrane mine when a cyanide valve broke exposing him to the deadly poison. Sodium cyanide is used to separate gold from rocks. In addition to the company, three supervisors were also charged.
