The crew initiated a go around, performed the related checklist executing an alternate gear extension, the left main gear still did not indicate down and locked. The crew subsequently attempted to pump the landing gear down for about 30-50 times, however, without success. The crew declared emergency, shut the left hand engine down and requested emergency services on standby. The cabin was prepared for an emergency landing, passengers were briefed. The crew performed a safe single engine landing about 40 minutes after the aborted approach, the aircraft stopped on the runway and was towed to the apron.
