Chilean authorities began a fresh drill on Thursday to try to locate two miners who went missing a week ago when the mine in which they were working was flooded.

A landslide on Friday at a section of the Delia mine, part of Canadian-listed Mandalay Resources’ Cerro Bayo gold and silver complex in Chile’s southern Aysen region, sparked the flooding from a nearby lake.
