Zimbabwe Gold Mine Disaster Kills 6 Lives And 15 More Trapped Under The Rubble
September 30, 2023 / By Zunair Tahir / World News
According to accounts from Zimbabwean media, a mine shaft collapsed at a gold mine on Friday, killing at least six miners and trapping 15 more.
More than 30 people were trapped after the Bay Horse gold mine collapsed on Friday morning in Zimbabwe’s Chegutu, 100 kilometers (62 miles) west of the capital Harare.
According to Zimbabwean media, 13 miners are now believed to have fled or been saved.
While it is unknown what caused the collapse, efforts to reach people who are still underneath are underway, according to television broadcaster ZBC.
The chairman of the Chegutu Miners Association and the secretary general of the Zimbabwe Miners Federation said they will go to the scene to attempt to find out what transpired.
However, in Zimbabwe, mine collapse-related fatalities have happened before.
Zimbabwe, which has enormous deposits of gold, platinum, and diamonds, frequently has mining accidents. There, mining techniques are frequently crude and safety regulations are largely ignored.
Previously, in 2019, scores of miners perished when the Silver Moon and Cricket mines in the town of Kadoma in the country’s center were flooded by heavy rain.
