The 2010 Copiapó mining accident, also known then as the "Chilean mining accident", began in the afternoon of Thursday, 5 August 2010 as a significant cave-in at the troubled 121-year-old San José copper–gold mine.The mine is located in the Atacama Desert about 45 kilometers (28 mi) north of the regional capital of Copiapó, in northern Chile.The buried men, who became known as "Los 33" ("The 33"), were trapped 700 meters (2,300 ft) underground and about 5 kilometers (3 mi) from the mine's entrance via spiraling underground service ramps.
Previous geological instability at the old mine and a long record of safety violations for the mine's owners had resulted in a series of fines and accidents, including eight deaths, during the dozen years leading up to this accident.
As a result of the mine's notorious history, it was originally thought that the workers had probably not survived the collapse or would starve to death before they were found, if ever.
The country of Chile had just endured the 2010 Chile earthquake and its associated tsunami less than six months before the accident.
I have been lax about updating this here blog (obviously) because I wanted to convince you folks to swing by the Free Beacon’s Editor’s Blog all on your own (a strategy that appears to have worked, judging by traffic stats). Viewing the film in IMAX 3D was less an experience than an endurance test.
But it’s been a few months so I figured I’d throw up a few links for any stragglers. A few pieces of note over the last couple of weeks: , where I work when I’m not blogging about Rob Zombie trailers, is starting a blog!
