A man has been rescued after spending more than 24 hours trapped in a mine shaft in an outback town in South Australia.
The 47-year-old man from the Riverland region was reported missing to police by his wife on Friday night.
Police called the experienced local mine rescue team after fears the man had fallen down one of the town’s many mine shafts.
The man was found more than 24 hours after he disappeared, desperately calling for help while trapped 25 metres down a shaft at the Nine Mile Opal field.
