These two pupils have been identified as David Opoku who is 13-year-old and Thomas Opoku who is 14-year-old.
The reason for their visit to the dam is unclear and nobody knows why they visited the dam which brought up their death.
According to The Okyeame of Ahafo Tutuka, Nana Yaw Ofori, they arranged for divers and swimmers to quickly rush to the rescue of the children after they were notified of the drowning in the dam.
He further added that when they got to the scene, there was no sign of the two boys and the efforts of the five divers were not yielding results.
According to him, it took several incantations and pouring of libation for the divers to reach the middle course of the dam where one of the boys was trapped lifeless. After finding the first boy, the second boy was also found.
However, both were already dead before help arrived and with police assistance, they have been conveyed to the Saint Elizabeth Hospital morgue for further investigations.
Two of the five rescuers told the media that the search was a difficult one since the dam was very deep and cold.
According to reports, this has brought the total death toll as a result of drowning in the Newmont dam to five.
Madam Angelina who is a Unit Committee member made a passionate appeal to the government to seize access to the dam in a bid to prevent further deaths.
