ITOGON, Benguet -- Three miners were rescued after being trapped at a private mine in Sitio Pukis, Ampucao here last week.
    Itogon police said in a report the miners were trapped when soil eroded inside the tunnel on July 22.
Police did not identify them in the report.
    The trapped miners were rescued and were in good condition but were brought to the Sto. Nino Hospital in Philex Mines for medical consultation.
    They are now back with their families.
    The rescue was conducted by police, Philex personnel and community folks.
    Following the July 27 earthquake, authorities warned small scale miners here to desist from entering tunnels as these could collapse anything during tremors.  
    Reports said small scale mining here temporarily stopped following warnings.
