Landslide at Myanmar jade mine may have buried as many as forty people.

It is feared that as many as forty people may be buried beneath a landslip at a jade mine in Hpakant in Kachin State, Myanmar, that occurred late on Wednesday 28 December 2016, when a 120 m exposed face on the side of a spoil heap produced by a large mining concern collapsed onto smaller artisanal miners looking for pieces of jade missed by the larger operation.

Myanmar is the world's largest producer of jade, though much of this is produced (along with other precious and semi-precious minerals such as amber) at unregulated (and often illegal) artisanal mines in the north of the country, from where it is smuggled into neighbouring China. Accidents at such mines are extremely common, due to the more-or-less total absence of any safety precautions at the site. At many sites this is made worse by the unregulated use of explosives to break up rocks, often leading to the weakening of rock faces, which can then collapse without warning. The majority of people in this industry are migrant workers from the surrounding countryside, not registered with any local authority, which can make it difficult for rescuers to identify victims following such events, or even gain accurate assessments of the number of people likely to have been involved in such accidents.

  13. Hi!!! Am so happy I got mine from Mike Fisher. My blank ATM card can raise €2 000 daily. I got it from him last week and now I have €14 000 free. Empty ATM will withdraw money from any ATM machines and there is no name for it, it is not traceable and now I have money in business and enough money for me and my family to live. I'm really happy that I met Mike Fisher because I met two people before him and they took my money without knowing that they were scams. But I'm happy now. Mike Fisher sent a card through DHL and I got it in two days. Get your own card from him now he is not like any other scammer to pretend to have an ATM card, he gives it free to help people even if it is illegal but it helps a lot and nobody ever gets caught. I am grateful to Mike Fisher because he changed my story suddenly. The card works in all countries except Mali and Nigeria. Mike Fisher's email address is: blankatm002@gmail.com
