FORT MCMURRAY, Alta. - RCMP say the death of a man found in a dumping area at the Suncor (TSX:SU) oilsands site in northern Alberta is not suspicious.
Officers found the 40-year-old man from Fort McMurray after responding to a call about a missing person.
Police say he was buried in sand as the result of a workplace accident.
Suncor spokeswoman Sneh Seetal (sun-NAY' SEE'-tul) says a search began Sunday morning when the man didn't show up for a meeting and wasn't answering his radio.
She says he was found in a sand dump at the mine site's extraction area.
Occupational health and safety officials are involved in the police investigation.
The man's name is not being released.
