The equipment was isolated and the material was contained on-site with no impact to the community.  Two co-workers received medical treatment as a result of the incident and both were released to return to work.  The exact cause of the incident is under investigation.

As always, we would like to thank and acknowledge our outstanding emergency response personnel for their quick response to this issue.  Safety is our top priority, and their response to an incident of any size is of critical importance to our operation.
