Noah Dinger, 24, Post Falls Idaho killed in mine accident

A tragic accident claimed the life of Noah Dinger, a miner from Post Falls, Idaho, early Monday morning. He was working at the Stillwater Mine near Nye, the only source of platinum and palladium in the U.S., owned by Sibanye Stillwater. According to Heather McDowell, a vice president of the company, Dinger was using a machine that secures wire panels to the underground walls to prevent rock falls. He got entangled in the rotating shaft of the machine and died around 1:30 a.m. His father, who was also working in the mine, found him. No one else witnessed the incident. McDowell confirmed Dinger’s identity after a friend of the family started an online fundraiser for his wife Kaylei and their two sons, aged 3 and 1. The mine operations were suspended on Monday and resumed on Tuesday, with safety instructions for the workers on the hazards of rotating equipment.
