Liberian authorities yesterday confirmed that the 21 bodies of gold miners who died after a mudslide buried them two months ago have been recovered.
According to the authorities, 45 miners were thought to have been trapped after the mudslide at the Gbanepea Mine in the lower Nimba County in central Liberia on Feb. 9.
Dorr Cooper, the Nimba County superintendent, said:
Only 21 bodies were found and that rescue operations had been brought to a close while speaking to newsmen. He also announced the closure of the mining site and suspension of all mining activities at the place until further notice.
Cooper called on the locals of the area to adhere to the government’s order on the closure of the site.
He also added:
“The Liberian government is working to ensure that all the necessary mechanisms are put in place to allow qualified individuals and organisations interested in exploration to start operating in the area very soon.”
