Rescuers are still searching for dozens of workers trapped in a gold and copper mine in northern Chile.

34 miners have been trapped underground since Thursday when the main ramp into the mine became blocked.

Rescuers faced a significant setback Saturday when another cave-in blocked the path they were using to reach the miners.

Local media reports the workers may be in a shelter inside the mine. Their conditions are unknown.
