THREE artisanal miners have been confirmed dead at Tix mine, populary known as kwa Pingo in Muzvezve constituency near Kadoma following flooding of the shaft they were working in.
The bodies have been retrieved while the search for the fourth one is still ongoing.
The four were part of five miners who entered the shaft at the mine but the fifth was lucky to escape and is the one who alerted authorities.
Meanwhile, the identities of the deceased were not immediately available.
With the incessant rains pounding across the country since December, unlicensed miners have been repeatedly warned against operating as the ground is wet and shaky. 🔺
