Dead are Murray Neil Fadden, aged 36, of Dryden, Ont., and Larry John Chorneyko, aged 58, of Arran, Sask., a small town about 90 km northeast of Yorkton.
Fadden and Chorneyko were employed at a rock-quarry mining operation known as Swansea Ridge Quarry, about 16 km south of Cranbrook. At about 5 p.m. Tuesday, the Mini Mack truck Fadden was driving went out of control on a steep mine-site access track that ran parallel to a conveyor. It crashed and overturned at the bottom of the track. Chroneyko was a passenger.
Both men died at the scene.
The BC Coroners Service and the BC Inspector of Mines continue to investigate their deaths.
