MINERS RESCUE 2010 / RESCATE DE MINEROS 2010
The collapse of the San Jose mine occurred on Thursday August 5th, 2010, leaving 33 miners trapped at about 720 meters deep for 70 days.
Rescue work began on the same day in the evening: planning, securing the area, conducting reconnaissance and entering the mine in search of access locations, and accumulating human and logistical resources. Amo y Cia was involved in logistics and rescue execution, moving and assembling the large winch that brought the Fenix capsule to the miner's rescue. To date it is the largest and most successful rescue in the history of mining worldwide.
