The BBC are reporting that a uranium mine has collapsed in DR congo, and that at least 9 people have been killed. The uranium mine has been officially
closed since 1960, and authorities then filled the main shaft with uranium to block digging. An estimated 6,000 miners still labored in the area
despite the ban, most drawn by the cobalt ore also in the soil there.
i've seen these things on documentaries before.. They are mining for parts for mobile phones which sell for a fair bit of money.. they illegally ship
them out of the country and get sold on to legit companies
