A rock slide occurred at Ternivska iron ore mine (Zaporizhya region), at the depth of 1,383 meters under the ground. Mykhailo Volynets, the head of Independent Trade Union of Mountaineers reported that on Facebook.
Search and rescue team reached the site and took one miner from under the debris. His actual health condition was not immediately revealed.
In September, protesting miners from Ternivska and Hvardiyska returned to surface after long-lasting rally; they demanded higher salaries. Administration of Kryvyi Rih iron ore plant reached consensus with miners, offering them to sign the memorandum. The administration also claimed that the claims of the mountraineers (higher salaries) will be met only after when all protesting miners return to surface.
