More than four years after he died, the coroner will hold an inquest into the death of a Sudbury miner. Forty-seven-year-old Stephen Perry was preparing an underground area at Vale’s Coleman Mine for blasting when he was crushed by a 14-ton rock fall.
The Ministry of Labour ruled the rock fall was unexpected and took place with no warning. As a result, no one was charged.
The coroner will hear from 10 witnesses at the inquest which is scheduled for five days and begins February 22nd.
