Rescue efforts at Langlaaste mine still a challange
Smoke underground the Langlaagte mine will keep rescue operations at a halt while a number of miners remain stuck beneath Joburg’s oldest mine shafts on the Central Rand.
Three illegal miners who emerged from underground have been arrested since a fire broke out there yesterday and two miners were hospitalised yesterday.
Two other miners were hospitalised yesterday.
Mineral resources minister Mosebenzi Zwane is visiting the scene where he says the safety of the rescuers is an important consideration before search and rescue resumes.
