New World said that an investigative committee is now looking into the incident. This committee is made of members of the District Mining Authority in Ostrava, CSM Mine management, OKD management, the OKD Trade Unions representatives and the police.

The company said that the incident had no impact on production.

New World shares are down 38% in the year to date, after seeing a big drop in revenues and profits over the first nine months of the year as it was hit by floundering demand in steel markets.

Revenues dropped 18% to €1.01bn with pre-tax profits coming in at €67.5m, down 59% on the previous year's figure.
