Officials say “multiple” persons have been killed and possibly many others injured after a blast occurred at a large underground mine near the town of Danilovgrad.
The BBC reported that a truck filled with ore careened into a tunnel deep underground, leading to a massive explosion.
The blast reportedly happened at about 4:50 p.m. local time (1750 GMT).
An investigation has begun in Danilovgrad, the BBC reported.
In a press conference, journalist Sergey Zhesgin said that eight people had been hospitalized, but it wasn’t known how many of those individuals suffered from burns and how many from other injuries.
Many of the dead are believed to be rescue workers and rescuers, the journalist said.
He said that “one main tower” had collapsed and is believed to be responsible for most of the casualties.
He added that people apparently had been working in the mine for several days in search of what he called “secret material” which was thought to be key for U.S. nuclear war plans.
