Four gold diggers were killed Sunday morning after a well collapsed in the northern province of Clip N’Dour, where thousands of Mauritanians are engaged in the exploration of surface gold.

According to the Sahara newspaper quote the sources said that the gold diggers are still under the rubble, due to the absence of any means of rescue in the region.

Since 2016, the Mauritanian government has given tens of thousands of licenses to explore the surface gold of young Mauritanians, while specialists believe that primitive work remains the reason for the increase in the number of deaths.
