Twenty-two workers were trapped in the Hushan mine in Qixia, a major gold-producing region. Rescuers struggled with difficult conditions to help workers in the midst of rising waters following the blast.
Contact was first made a week ago with a group of 11 miners trapped in a section of the mine about 580 meters underground. One of them injured in the explosion died the other day.
Rescue teams sent food, medicine and other supplies through several “rescue” trees drilled into the rock.
The first rescued miner was found in a section closer to the surface than the section where the first group is located, CCTV reported.
A twelfth miner is believed to be trapped alone, 100 meters below in rising waters.
For the other nine miners, hopes have been dashed because there is no information about them since the explosion.
Mining accidents are common in China, where the industry has a history of poor safety and poorly enforced regulations.
