A 52-year-old man from Fond du Lac, Sask., has died after the all-terrain vehicle he was driving plummeted 10 metres off a cliff at a former mine site.
RCMP say the crash happened on Aug. 19, when the man was noted missing by his co-workers.
The next day, his co-workers found him next to his ATV at the bottom of the cliff at the Gunnar decommissioned mine site.
The man was airlifted to Stony Rapids, Sask., and then to a Saskatoon hospital, where he died of his injuries on Aug. 24, police said in a release.
RCMP said the man was not wearing a helmet and may have been drinking at the time of the crash.
Police add that the man did not work at the mine, nor was the mine involved in the collision.
The man was a barge operator in Saskatchewan's Athabasca region, and was known to take his personal ATV on his barge on trips to remote communities, according to police.
