MOSCOW, August 5. /TASS/. Communication has been established with one of the nine workers trapped in the flooded Mir mine in Russia’s Siberian Republic of Yakutia, said a source in the Alrosa diamond company, the owner of the mine.
"One of the miners has got in touch with rescue workers from level 410," the source said.
The flooding incident occurred at about 17:00 local time on Friday, when 151 people were down in the mine. As many as 142 of them have been lifted to the surface, the rescue operation continues.
