BOGOTA, May 1 (Xinhua) - At least three miners were killed and up to 30 believed to have been buried when a wildcat gold mine collapsed in Colombia's southwest Cauca department, a Red Cross official said Thursday. The accident in rural Santander de Quilichao, Cauca, was caused by a landslide just before midnight Wednesday and authorities said they have little hope of finding survivors due to the tons of earth, mud and stone that collapsed on the site.
