This connotation does not leave a minor in the light of the events that occurred, because while some mining is the great company of Chile, not which represents the highest accident rate work in the country, exceeding the construction. Then there are the explanation for the tremendous hype that has generated this News in Chile, it is not common that these events occur in our country and occur, they correspond to isolated facts, which rarely end in massive deaths of people, whereas mining in Chile not only restricted to copper, because they also explode under various forms of open pit, tunnels and pirquenes (slow exploitation vertical holes), minerals from coal in the region VIIItoday known worldwide for being the epicentre of the 8.8 earthquake of February past, but also salt, gold, molybdenum, lithium, silica, limestone, oil, etc., i.e., mining operations are the length and width of the 4,000 kilometers of this country. Large scale mining in Chile is world-class, leading producer and exporter of copper in the world, is not less for a global economy that demands more and more this product, mainly electronics industry and within the countries of greater demand China. But despite these global standards, which became apparent with the vivid crisis, is the capacity of the human, and technical teams who managed to poll until the place where lie the survivors in 2 weeks, demonstrating this leadership of exploitation – almost all necessary machinery for the rescue were in Chile – and good coordination of the Government and the contribution of private, was enough so in less than 48 hours probing teams were operating on the surface of the mine. In Chile copper, is the gold of the metalworkers and miners, if half a kilo of ore trades at almost $3, imagine the added attraction that this represents for the large national companies such as Codelco, leading producer and private as PH Billion, Escondida, Incahuasi to name a few, for medium-sized miners associated with the national society of mining Sonami, that brings together small and medium entrepreneurs and so talk of the tributors, which pierce the desert anywhere, because the mineral appears in reefs near the surface, what attracts this activity, tremendously risky because it’s small piques, where they work no more than 10 men, who descend on these holes hundreds of meters at times, for digging the vein and steal the precious mineral green (for those who do not know the copper occurs as an emerald green spot in the rock and all children of chile can easily distinguish it), which allows them to gather a month just about $200, to differences of the miners who work in large companies, with salaries in thousands of dollars a month.
