Wreckage of a plane carrying Australian mining executives and missing since the weekend was found Monday in the Republic of Congo, near the Gabonese border, Australian mining company Sundance Resources said. No survivors were found, company officials said.
The plane was reported missing after it took off from the Cameroon capital of Yaonde on Saturday. It was en route to Yangadou in the Republic of the Congo.
Most of the nine passengers on the chartered flight were employees of Sundance Resources. The group was visiting Sundance's iron ore project in Cameroon and Congo, the company said.
