The bodies of miners killed by a landslide are placed on the ground in a jade mining site in Hpakhant in Myanmar's Kachin state.
The military was working with local residents in rescue and recovery efforts, state media reported.
The death toll is expected to rise with many reported still missing.
The area produces some of the world's highest quality jade, a nearly translucent green stone that is highly valued in neighboring China.
Workers, typically migrants from other parts of the country, eke out a livelihood in the shadow of the mines by sifting through the tailings for leftover jade.
