It is with sadness that BHP Billiton Mitsubishi Alliance (BMA) advises that John Barker, an employee of Nixon Communications working at Blackwater Mine, was fatally injured in a motor vehicle accident at the mine late this morning.  
 
Operations at the site have been suspended.  The immediate family has been notified, and BMA is providing priority assistance to them and all people at the mine.  Our immediate thoughts are with the family.

Further details will be issued as they become available.
