CIM ACADEMY. Slack R. 08/26/20; 308794 Topic: Health, Safety & Reliability
Abstract
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.
 
The rescue was a testament to the ability of the global mining industry to collaborate and innovate. It also provided some valuable lessons learned when it comes to mine safety.
 
The Cementation group carried out one of the 3 rescue plans at the San Jose mine in Chile and on the 10th anniversary of this historic event CIM Underground Mining Society and the CIM Safety Committee are hosting this presentation. It will be focused on safety and what key lessons were learned
