This news has traveled the world since almost 3 weeks ago and have not been few media news, which have not stopped reporting on a tremendously stressful situation, not only for the families of the workers trapped 700 meters deep in a mine in the North of Chile in the Atacama region, but for all a nation that expectantIt has followed the details as if it were a personal tragedy of every Patriot. I imagine that the world in general, also has felt this effect of uncertainty that makes us think and put ourselves in the place of those affected and particularly how terrible that must be buried in life at these depths of the Earth, with a sweltering heat by the oxygen-poor, poor ventilation of the place, the reduced space of some hundreds of meters that corresponds to the access ramps to the deepest levels of the mine, not to mention the lack of food, water, light, which miners cleverly learned to circumvent rationing consumption of the few supplies that had, to two tablespoons of canned fish and half a cup of milk every 48 hours, which allowed them to survive 19 days, until a probe dug a pit of 655 metres, which broke right at the ramp where the survivors were staying and from this true artery, has been possible to supply food gel, medication, communication, to be able to stabilize them medically, to freshly begin the tasks of rescue, that in a time horizon would not be before 90 days. For those who don’t know, Chile is a country essentially mining, in fact their main exportable product is copper, close to half of its GDP comes from the contribution of this extractive activity, which since the beginning of the 20th century, has been the support of its economy, as it was previously the saltpetre and Guano. .
