Prospectors rescued

Three gold prospectors have been found by an air and land rescue team after failing to return from exploration near Paraburdoo in the Pilbara.

AAP reports concerns for the group of two men and a woman were raised after they failed to return home last Monday.

According to AAP the prospectors were found shortly after the rescue effort was launched.
