Four miners have died following an accident at Zambia’s Nchanga open pit mine, owned by London-listed Vedanta Resources, police said. Copperbelt police commanding officer Martin Malama said in an interview that police had retrieved three bodies and were still looking for one more.
Dr Malama said the accident happened at about 15:30 hours on March 26. “Three bodies have been retrieved and we are remaining with one. The accident happened while the miners were excavating a heap of soil,” Dr Malama said.
