On Friday, a representative for the Gold mine’s operating firm stated that power had been reinstated to a lift to save them.

The workers have been caught underground ever since Wednesday.

South Africa based Beatrix mine is situated in Welkom town 290km (180 miles) south-west of Johannesburg. It is possessed by Sibanye-Stillwater mining organization.

Various ambulances reached to the spot to evacuate the workers, reports said.

Company spokesman James Wellsted stated on Thursday, “Water and food supplies had been able to reach the miners, but engineers were struggling to get emergency generators operating.”

The power cut is expected to have been taken place after a hurricane hit an electricity pylon near the site.
