26 workers were successfully rescued following a collapse at the Ballarat Gold Mine in Victoria, Australia, as reported by local news outlets.

Efforts are underway to rescue one remaining miner trapped due to a rockfall at the site, according to the Australian Broadcasting Corporation.

The collapse, which occurred on Wednesday afternoon, initially trapped 27 workers inside the mine.

By Wednesday evening, rescue operations had managed to free 26 of the miners, one of whom was seriously injured by the rockfall and has been hospitalized.
