Sundance is trying to get a second rescue team to try and salvage the bodies from the crash site in Africa. Sundance Resources Ltd lost its entire board of six members in the aircraft crash on Saturday on the western ridge of Congo's Avima Range, near the Gabonese border.
The twin-engine CASA 212 was carrying Chairman Geoff Wedlock, chief executive Don Lewis, company secretary John Carr-Gregg and non-executive directors Ken Talbot, John Jones and Craig Oliver amongst others in the 11 people on board.
While flying from Yaounde, the capital of Cameroon, to the site of Sundance's Mbalam iron ore project near Yangadou in northwest Congo-Brazzaville the plane crashed in the dense forest.
The location of the crash has made it difficult to remove the bodies from the site. Sundance has deployed a second team of specialist recovery experts from South Africa and they are en route to the crash site to assist in the recovery operation as per a statement from the company on Thursday.
