Efforts to rescue the miners from the collapsed mine are still underway and prayers are sent to the people trapped in the mine. The three who died were instantly pulled out but no one knows how many more are dead.

There is gold in this area but very little deposits and residents have to dig really deep for the gold. Many hope that the miners will be rescued as the rescue goes on.
