    The Costa Rica News (TCRN) – Hundreds of artisanal miners have joined the search for seven of their colleagues who were caught Thursday in an old gold deposit below the town of Bonanza , in the northern Nicaragua Caribbean.

    The government delegate for the Caribbean Coast, Lumberto Campbell, said in a report given to authorities, that about 100 informal miners who know the craft have joined the search and rescue work.

    The search efforts are officially being coordinated by the National System for Prevention, Mitigation and Attention to Disasters (SINAPRED).

    According to the government, 27 gold miners were trapped on Thursday, along with two others who made it out on their own to the surface, in an old artisanal mine in the town of Bonanza, after a landslide on El Comal hill.

    On Friday, rescue teams retrieved the first 20 miners, although seven have remained trapped since.

    Speaking to official media, the first lady and government spokesman, Rosario Murillo, said this is a great “example of solidarity” between the miners, past and present.

    He stressed that even one of the two who left the mine first has returned to continue and aid in the search.

    Many relatives and friends of the trapped miners have settled in small and rustic tents around the site, where they pray and wait to be reunited with their loved ones.
