The death toll in a methane explosion at a mine in West Siberia has risen to 25
The death toll in a methane explosion at a mine in West Siberia has risen to 25, the press service of the local governor said Monday. The Emergency Situations Ministry said 86 of 186 miners have been rescued up to now from the Ulyanovskaya mine in Novokuznetsk, the largest coal producing center in the Kemerovo Region. Rescuers are continuing work at the site. Earlier reports said Emergency Situations Minister Sergei Shoigu would soon fly to Novokuznetsk on President Vladimir Putin's order. Explosions are not uncommon in Russia's crumbling coal mining industry. But the Ulyanovksaya mine was only opened in 2002. It produces 3 million metric tons of coal annually and its reserves total 210 million metric tons.
