JINAN — Three more miners were rescued on Jan 24 after being trapped underground for two weeks due to a blast in a gold mine in East China's Shandong province.

Earlier on the morning of Jan 24, the rescuers lifted a trapped worker. The worker, said to be in extremely weak condition, was lifted from the mine at 11:13 am on Jan 24, and has been rushed to a hospital for treatment.

Currently, 633 people and 407 equipment are at the site for rescue operations.

Twenty-two miners have been trapped about 600 meters underground since the mine blast on Jan 10 in Qixia, under the city of Yantai, in Shandong province.

Before Jan 24, rescuers had established contact with only 10 of the miners, who are in good physical and psychological condition. Another is believed to have been dead.

Rescuers said on Jan 23 that the 10 workers have returned to a normal diet after relying on nutrient solutions for survival in previous days. Rescue headquarters at the site said that they have sent food, clothes, and other supplies to the 10 miners through a channel.
