EWN reported that six people died last week during an explosion underground while a group of suspected criminals were allegedly stealing copper cables from one of the shafts. The abandoned mine was put under business rescue last year.

The rescue team had to stop operations last week following a toxic gas leakage.

Mr Mike Elliott, who represents the business rescue practitioners, says they have started with the first phase of their rescue mission. He said that “We have taken a fan down into the incline shaft to pump fresh air into the mine shaft and establish a fresh air base underground for recovery operations for later on during the week.”
