CHINA, Feb 17: A fire that broke out at a gold mine in east China’s Shandong province killed two people and left four others missing, state media reported on Wednesday.

The fire occurred during an equipment maintenance at the Caojiawa gold mine in the city of Zhaoyuan, the Xinhua news agency reported.

An explosion in January at a separate gold mine in the same province killed at least 10 miners and the provincial government later followed up by launching safety inspections focusing on the non-coal mining and metal processing sectors.
