Zimbabwe Celebrates Miraculous Rescue of 15 Trapped Miners

Miraculous Rescue: All Miners Alive After Zimbabwe Redwing Mine Collapse

by Ikeoluwa Ogungbangbe

In a remarkable display of courage and determination, rescuers in Zimbabwe successfully pulled off a miraculous rescue operation, saving all 15 subsistence miners who were trapped underground at the Redwing mine. The incident occurred after a ground collapse within the mine, located 270 km (167.77 miles) east of the capital city, Harare.

Government spokesperson Nick Mangwana announced the heartening news, stating, “All miners were rescued alive.” The operation to free the trapped miners had faced delays due to unstable ground conditions, as reported by Metallon Gold, the company that owns the Redwing mine.

The dramatic rescue mission, documented in video footage shared on social media platform X (formerly Twitter) by Mangwana, captured the miners emerging from the depths, covered in mud, and greeted by a jubilant crowd at the mine site.

The Redwing mine had been the site of informal mining operations conducted by subsistence miners since it was placed under corporate rescue in 2020, according to the company. The success of this rescue operation marks a momentous occasion and a testament to the dedication and bravery of those involved.

Zimbabweans and the global community alike celebrate this extraordinary feat, as all 15 miners emerge alive from the depths of adversity.
