I’ve commented before on the worker safety conditions (or lack thereof) in China. So this relayed without further comment. The articles so far don’t say whether this is metalurgical (coaking) coal or some other type.
Thirty-four miners were underground when the accident occurred at the Jiajiapu Coal Mine in Shanxi province Saturday, the report said. Fifteen workers escaped unharmed.
The mine was operating without official permits, it said.
China’s mines are the world’s most dangerous with fires, floods and other mishaps killing workers almost every day. Lax safety rules and a lack of proper safety equipment are often to blame.
