Collapse traps at least 11 gold miners in Honduras

July 3, 2014

TEGUCIGALPA, Honduras – A cave-in at an unlicensed gold mine in Honduras trapped at least 11 miners Wednesday, officials said.

The workers are stuck at a depth of 80 meters (260 feet) in the southern town of El Corpus, said Oscar Triminio, a spokesman for the fire brigade in the Honduran capital.

Rescuers cannot use machinery to try to get to the miners because the earth at the mine is unstable. So crews are working with their hands, he said.

Earlier this year one person died and another was injured at a cave-in at the same mine, Triminio said.
