Digger Operator’s Lucky Escape After Machine Takes A Tumble At Mineral Resources’ Mt Marion Lithium Mine

A digger operator at the Mt Marion lithium project near Kalgoorlie avoided serious injury last month when his machine toppled over onto its side.

Video footage sent to WestBusiness shows the digger working close to the edge of a ledge, becoming unbalanced and tipping over.

The operator of a truck from which the footage is shot warns the driver via radio “you’re right on the edge there” before the machine lurches over on its side.

He then says “Jesus, oh no” and calls out: “emergency, emergency, emergency” as the machine tumbles.
