In August of 2010, a fall of ground trapped 33 miners 700m below the surface in a mine in Northern Chile. The world watched as the Chilean government and the global mining industry joined forces to apply the latest in drilling and mine rescue technology to find and rescue the trapped miners. By October 13th, 2010 all the miners had been safely brought to surface.
