LHASA, April 3 (Xinhua) -- The names, genders and registered permanent addresses of all 83 victims of a landslide in a mountainous mining area in Tibet were released by the rescue headquarters on Wednesday.

According to a rescue headquarters statement, 27 of the 83 mine workers who have been confirmed dead or are still buried under rocks and mud were natives of northeastern China's Jilin Province and 26 were from the northwestern China's Shaanxi Province.

Thirteen were from southwestern China's Guizhou Province, six were from the neighboring province of Sichuan, and three were from northeastern China's Liaoning Province.

Two were from a village in Gyangze county of Tibet and two came from the municipality of Chongqing. The remaining four were from provinces of Hebei, Henan, Shandong and Heilongjiang.

Of the 83, only four were females.

Rescuers had pulled 66 bodies out of the debris by Wednesday afternoon, five-and-a-half days after the landslide swept through workers' camps of the Jiama Copper Polymetallic Mine, according to the rescue headquarters. Seventeen remained buried.

The mine is run by Tibet Huatailong Mining Development Co., Ltd., a subsidiary of the country's largest gold producer, China National Gold Group Corporation.
