Chinese authorities have sent rescuers to a gold mine in the country's northeast where 22 workers are trapped underground following an explosion, state media reported on Tuesday.

The blast happened on Sunday afternoon in a town near Qixia city, located in the eastern Shandong province, a local government official said.

The explosion damaged the exit from the mine as well as the communication system, cutting off all contact with the trapped miners, according to a statement released late Monday.

The miners have been able to communicate via a new telephone line.

Rescuers had initially lowered rations on a cable, and received back a note saying "Don't stop trying to reach us".

Eleven other miners remain missing in the gold mine, their fate unclear.
