CBC reported that a stop-work order has been lifted at the Donkin coal mine in Cape Breton, NS. Work was halted July 8 after there was a rock fall about a kilometre inside an entrance tunnel. The mine was on a brief summer shutdown at the time and there were no injuries.

Mr Scott Nauss, the senior director of inspections and compliance with the Nova Scotia Department of Labour, said the mine has installed some "high-priority" supports in the area of the rock fall and will add supports in other parts of the tunnel over the next two weeks.
