Rescued eleven of the 200 miners trapped in an abandoned gold mining in South Africa

The emergency services of South Africa have rescued 11 miners of the 200 illegal miners trapped in an abandoned gold mining, in Benoni, near Johannesburg

The South African public radio station reported that, apparently, the miners had come into the mining for stealing and they were shut by a rival group in the old gold mine.

An emergency, crews, that drove around the abandoned mine, heard screams from the shaft. It could communicate with 30 workers close to surface, but were not able to confirm the number of the miners trapped is 200.

Have mobilized recue trucks and a bus had been equiped as mobile clinic for looking after the workers.

When they have been rescued, the illegal miners must face justice for accesing illegally into this mining, a common practice in South Africa.

Therefore, some of the miners have refused to go out the mine to avoid arrest, reported sources of emergency services.

The value of the gold extracted from illegal mines in South Africa each year exceeds 400 million euros, which nourish a national and international mafia organization.

Just ten days ago, eight miners died in a mining in Doornkop, southwest of Johannesburg, two days after being trapped underground.
