ELKO, Nev. (AP) - A sheriff’s official says a man who was found with apparently self-inflicted stab wounds at a northeast Nevada gold mine was taken for treatment to a hospital in Boise, Idaho.

Elko County Undersheriff Kevin McKinney tells the Elko Daily Free Press (https://bit.ly/28IuQaR ) that the man may have gone several days without medical attention before he was found at the Jerritt Canyon mine site.

The injured man’s name wasn’t immediately made public. McKinney says he’s expected to recover.

McKinney says the initial report was that the man had been attacked by several people.

But deputies found that the man was a mine employee and that he may have caused the injuries himself.
