SHANGHAI, Jan 20 (Reuters) – China has deployed 16 professional rescue teams and dozens of medical personnel to try to save 12 miners trapped underground for 10 days after an explosion in a gold mine in northern China’s Shandong province, state media reported.

A total of 22 miners were left trapped after an explosion on Jan. 10 at the Hushan gold mine on the outskirts of the city of Yantai on China’s eastern coast.

At least 12 were found to be still alive after a note was retrieved a week later expressing hope that the rescue work would continue.
