Lily Mine: Rescue efforts to resume
It's been a month since the horrific accident at Vantage Goldfields' Lily Mine in Barberton that saw miners, Pretty Nkambule, Solomon Nyerende and Yvonne Mnisi trapped 80 meters underground.
A few weeks ago, the rescue efforts were suspended due to a third rock collapse that made it too dangerous for rescuers to continue.
John Robbie spoke to the CEO of Vantage Goldfields, Mike McChesney to get an update and find out how the mine will go about the new recovery mission.
We really do want to find and bring closure to the situation.Mike McChesney, CEO at Vantage Goldfields
We closed the mine. The government also closed the mine.Mike McChesney, CEO at Vantage Goldfields
