At about 15:00 local time on December 23, there was another landslide in the Pakang jade mining area in Kachin State, Myanmar.
At present, four people have disappeared and one person has been injured.
Due to the small space at the scene of the accident and the possibility of another landslide at any time, rescuers are unable to rescue at present.
In addition, the depth of the pool below the landslide accident is more than 120 meters, which also brings great difficulties to the rescue work.
The Myanmar government issued a notice on June 26, requesting the suspension of mining operations in the jade mining area in Kachin State from July 1, and then postponed the validity of the suspension notice to the end of January 2021.
Despite the ban on mining, illegal mining has been banned repeatedly.
On July 2, a large-scale mining accident occurred in Pakang, killing 174 illegal extractors and missing 20 people, making it the most casualty accident in Myanmar’s history.
Up to now, the casualties caused by landslides in the Pakang jade mining area have exceeded 200 in this year.
