Myanmar news: A major accident has occurred in India’s neighboring country, Myanmar. 25 people have died due to landslides in the mine due to heavy rains and floods here. More than 30 people are still missing. The operation to find the missing persons is going on. The incident took place in a remote area of ​​Myanmar. Emergency service officials said on Tuesday that rescue operations are underway to rescue the missing persons. Heavy rains and flooding triggered a landslide at a jade mine on the outskirts of Hpakant town in Kachin province on Sunday.

A rescue worker told the media on Tuesday that 25 bodies were recovered during the rescue operation on Tuesday. The search and rescue operation for the 30 missing persons will continue on Wednesday. Rescue workers had to clear the mud to retrieve the bodies, the scene of destruction was such that the rescue personnel saw some bodies floating in the water. Rescue workers said that while the mining was going on, heavy rain caused a pile of mud about 150-180 meters (500-600 ft) high to collapse.

What is the cause of the accident?

According to media reports, relief and rescue operations have been affected due to heavy rains and floods. Mine operations were suspended due to rain. However, it is believed that the local people had gathered in the hope of finding some valuables from the soil when the mudslide hit them.

Jade mines have a large amount of natural resources.

The jade industry relies on low-wage migrant workers to source the highly coveted gemstone in neighboring China. Jade and other abundant natural resources in Myanmar’s north – including timber, gold and amber – have financed both sides of the decades-long civil war between ethnic Kachin rebels and the military. While environmentalists and rights groups have long called for reforms to mining practices.
