Rescuers step up efforts to recover trapped workers at Pakistan mine

Rescue operations are still ongoing to recover three workers trapped inside the Dudder lead-zinc mine, owned by MMC Huaye Dudder Mining Co., in Lasbela, in Pakistan's Balochistan province, Dawn reported Oct. 2.

A lift carrying five workers, including four Chinese engineers and one Pakistani electrician, fell 1 kilometer inside the mine on Sept. 24.

Two engineers managed to escape, but, according to Chief Inspector Mines in Balochistan Iftikhar Ahmed, there was a slim chance that the three remaining men have survived.

The incident resulted in destroying the entire power system providing electricity, fresh air and machinery used for cooling high temperatures inside the mine. Gases and heat inside the mine are interfering with the rescue work, the officials added.

The rescuers have managed to reach 600 meters into the mine to create ventilation inside the mine. Meanwhile, a four-member team of Chinese experts have also reached the mine site to take part in the rescue work.

According to the officials, the two Chinese engineers had gone inside the mine to rescue the Pakistani worker, but they got trapped as well.
