Search efforts for workers killed in a methane explosion in the Ulyanovskaya mine are continuing
Search efforts for workers killed in a methane explosion at a depth of over 200 metres in the Ulyanovskaya mine in the Kemerovo region are continuing. On Sunday, rescue workers began to lay a 270-millimetre pipeline to the flooded section of the Ulyanovskaya mine where bodies of two missing miners are supposedly lying. The pipeline is being built in order to increase the amount of pumped out water, Itar-Tass was told at the emergency aftermath liquidation headquarters. Rescuers have also installed an additional fan for getting more air in the mine. It is necessary to purify air permanently in order to avoid high methane concentration, the headquarters said. The coalmine section where the pumping out of water is underway is the only section of the mine that has been not examined. Rescuers and miners have already several times inspected all other sections of the Ulyanovskaya mine and checked all cave-ins. They have practically no doubts that the two missing miners are in the section filled with water. The accident that took place in the Ulyanovskaya mine on March 19 is the worst in the number of victims in Kuzbass history. The methane explosion killed 108 people there and 103 of the bodies have been identified. The identification procedure will be continued after the two missing miners are found, in order to exclude possible mistakes.
