Police in Ghana says Nine people died in a gold mine collapse in northern Ghana this week.

Accidents in small-scale gold-mining, known locally as galamsey”, are common in Ghana and President Nana Akufo-Addo vowed a crackdown to curb its environmental damage.

 Police said the latest incident in the remote mining area of Gbane, Talensi district, in the Upper East region near the border with Burkina Faso happened late on Monday during a downpour.

 Police spokesman David Fianko-Okyere said three more bodies may still be trapped.
