A Saskatoon company and one of its supervisors have been given hefty fines after pleading guilty to three charges under provincial occupational health and safety regulations.
Claude Resources has been ordered to pay $24,500 in fines while shift boss Steve Strickland received a $1,500 dollar fine and $600 surcharge.
The charges stem from a blasting operation gone awry at the Seabee Gold Mine, located northeast of La Ronge, in January 2012
Provincial officials say the blast knocked Strickland and another employee to the ground, causing injuries to the employee.
Another employee also received a broken leg after a truck was pushed forward by the blast, pinning him to a wall.
Earlier this month Claude Resources and Strickland pleaded guilty to contravening various health and safety regulations.
