Ottawa [Canada], September 28 (ANI/Xinhua): A total of 39 miners were stuck underground at a mine named Vale's Totten in Sudbury, Canada, according to CTV on Monday.

The 39 miners were trapped underground after an incident occurred that caused damage to the shaft around 11:30 a.m. Sunday.

A rescue team is working on-site to get the miners to the surface. Medication and food have been brought to the miners after the conveyance for transporting miners was taken offline following the incident.

The miners will exit via a secondary egress ladder system with the support of the rescue team, which has been in frequent communication with the miners.

The mine produces ores of copper, nickel and other precious metals. The main shaft of the mine is 4,130 feet (about 1,259 meters) below the surface. (ANI/Xinhua)
