Reports gathered by GBC News suggest that at least, 20 gold miners have been trapped in one of the pits of Anglogold Ashanti at Obuasi in the Ashanti region.

Confirming the information, the Assembly Member for the Ahansony3wodea Electoral Area, Vincent Donkor, told GBC News that he was informed by some relatives at about 3am on Tuesday, October 18, 2022 that their loved ones had gone missing for five days after leaving their respective homes in search of gold.

Mr. Donkor said he followed it up to the Security Office of Anglogold Ashanti who in turn asked that the matter be formally reported at the Local Police Station for action.
