(Reuters) - Canadian plant maker Notrian has said 34 of its workers have been trapped for 24 hours in a mine at a depth of 1,000 meters below the surface of the earth following an elevator failure they were trying to maintain.
"We have 34 maintenance personnel who have had to stop their work underground safely since yesterday afternoon," a mining company spokesman told AFP.
The elevator, which is located southwest of Saskatoon in central Canada's Saskatchewan province, has been disrupted by the elevator, causing maintenance workers to be kept below it at a depth of about 1,000 meters.
"The elevator has stopped working," the spokesman said, adding that rescuing the workers required "only safe return to work."
"Our teams are doing what is necessary to bring these workers back to the surface as soon as possible," he said
