Speaking to Great Dyke News 24, the Civil Protection Unit director Nathan Nkomo says the water in the deep mine shafts is delaying rescue efforts at Ran Mine in Bindura where a shaft collapsed trapping an unverified number of miners estimated to be between thirty or forty people.

He added that the shaft is quite deep and this has brought so many challenges to the team that now has to drain water first for the effort to continue.

A number of miners had been working inside the disused Ran Gold Mine when the ground caved in.

Although the site was officially closed 10 years ago, some workers remained behind to extract residual gold along with other unemployed people who came to work there.
