Six killed in landslip at quarry in Punjab Province, Pakistan.

Six workers have been killed and another two seriously injured following a landslide at a quarry in the Sargodha District of Punjab Province, Pakistan, on Wednesday 27 September 2017. The incident reportedly happened while the men were setting explosive charges along a quarry face, though there are no reports of any explosions, suggesting the incident was caused by a weakness in the rockface rather than a premature detonation. This incident brings to nine the number of people who have died in quarry accidents in Sargodha District in the last two weeks.

The approximate location of the 27 September 2017 Sargodha landslide. Google Maps.

Pakistan has a rapidly growing population, having risen from 33.7 million in `1951 (when the first national census was undertaken) to 207.8 million in 2017. This has driven major expansion and construction in all of the country's cities, which in turn has created an immense demand for building materials, including a variety of quarried rocks. Unfortunately this rise in demand has been fed by a fast growing but poorly regulated excavation industry, with little regulation of licenced quarries and many completly unlicenced operations running alongside them.

  2. THE BEST PLACE TO SOLVE YOUR FINANCIAL PROBLEMS ( upstartloan@yahoo.com )

    Hello everyone in this forum, I am Jane Robin from palm Harbor Florida 34682. USA and want to use this medium to express gratitude to UP START LOAN for fulfilling their promise by granting me a loan, i was stuck in a financial situation and needed to refinance and pay my bills as well as start up a Business. I tried seeking for loans from various loan firms both private and corporate organisations but never with success, and most banks declined my credit request. But as God would have it, i was introduced by a friend named Mary Williams to UP START LOAN whom also confirmed to me that she also obtained a loan from them. In an attempt to resolve my current situation, i got in contact with the company via email and undergone the due process of obtaining a loan from the company, to my greatest surprise within 48hrs just like my friend Mary, i was also granted a loan of $80,000.00; So my advise to everyone who or know someone who desires a loan, if you must contact any firm with reference to securing a loan online with low interest rate of 2% and better repayment plans/schedule, please contact UP START LOAN. Besides, he doesn’t know that am doing this but due to the joy in me, i'm so happy and wish to let people know more about this great company whom truly give out loans, it is my prayer that GOD should bless them more as they put smiles on peoples faces. You can contact them via email on ( upstartloan@yahoo.com ) or Text/Call +1(574) 301-1639 .............
