Workers trapped in a Chinese gold mine for more than nine days have received more medical and food supplies, including bandages, blankets and rice porridge, but one of the group is in a critical condition with a severe head injury, state media has reported. According to Al Jazeera more than 300 people are involved in the rescue effort and excavators and machinery are on site but the teams have warned it will be extremely difficult to bring out the miners from the tunnel’s entrance and progress of the rescue has been slow as the surrounding rock near the ore body is mostly granite. It has also been reported that there is a lot of water in the shaft that may pose a danger to the trapped workers.
