JOHANNESBURG - Two miners have been killed at AngloGold Ashanti's Mponeng Mine in Carletonville.

Rescue operations are under way as two other workers remain trapped underground.

Mine spokesperson Chris Nthite says a seismic event led to a rock collapse.

This is third such incident at the Mponeng Mine in just over a month.

Two miners were killed there a couple of weeks ago.
