The 33 - Official Trailer [HD]
 
02:33
The 33 - in theaters November 13th. http://the33movie.com https://www.facebook.com/the33movie --- From Alcon Entertainment and Phoenix Pictures comes the unforgettable true story of “The 33.” In 2010, the eyes of the world turned to Chile, where 33 miners had been buried alive by the catastrophic explosion and collapse of a 100-year-old gold and copper mine. Over the next 69 days, an international team worked night and day in a desperate attempt to rescue the trapped men as their families and friends, as well as millions of people globally, waited and watched anxiously for any sign of hope. But 200 stories beneath the surface, in the suffocating heat and with tensions rising, provisions—and time—were quickly running out. A story of resilience, personal transformation and triumph of the human spirit, the film takes us to the Earth’s darkest depths, revealing the psyches of the men trapped in the mine, and depicting the courage of both the miners and their families who refused to give up. Based on the gripping true story of survival—and filmed with the cooperation of the miners, their families and their rescuers—“The 33” reveals the never-before-seen actual events that unfolded, above and below ground, which became nothing less than a worldwide phenomenon. The international cast is led by Antonio Banderas, Rodrigo Santoro, Academy Award winner Juliette Binoche (“The English Patient”), James Brolin, and Lou Diamond Phillips, with Bob Gunton and Gabriel Byrne. The main cast also includes Mario Casas, Jacob Vargas, Juan Pablo Raba, Oscar Nuñez, Tenoch Huerta, Marco Treviño, Adriana Barraza, Kate Del Castillo, Cote de Pablo, Elizabeth De Razzo, Naomi Scott, Gustavo Angarita, and Alejandro Goic. Patricia Riggen directed “The 33” from a screenplay by Mikko Alanne, Oscar nominee Craig Borten (“Dallas Buyers Club”) and Michael Thomas, based on the screen story by Jose Rivera and the book Deep Down Dark by Hector Tobar. The film was produced by Oscar nominee Mike Medavoy (“Black Swan”), Robert Katz and Edward McGurn. Carlos Eugenio Lavin, Leopoldo Enriquez, Alan Zhang and José Luis Escolar served as executive producers. The behind-the-scene creative team included cinematographer Checco Varese, production designer Marco Niro, editor Michael Tronick and Oscar-nominated costume designer Paco Delgado (“Les Misérables”). The Academy Award-winning team of Alex Henning and Ben Grossman (“Hugo”) supervised the visual effects. The score was composed by Oscar winner James Horner (“Titanic”). “The 33” was filmed on location in Chile’s harshly remote yet stunningly beautiful Atacama desert just kilometers away from where the event took place, and deep within two mines located in central Colombia. A presentation of Alcon Entertainment and Phoenix Pictures, “The 33” is slated to open on November 13, 2015 and will be distributed by Warner Bros. Pictures, a Warner Bros. Entertainment Company.

How 33 Chilean Miners Escaped A Collapsed Mine (2010)
 
20:13
Inside the Miracle (2010): In 2010 the story of the 33 Chilean miners trapped in a collapsed mine caught the imagination of people around the world. Despite the excitement and emotion, the impoverished mine workers who were not trapped are being easily forgotten by the international media.

With the trapped 33 likely to receive millions, the rest of the impoverished miners - who are now jobless - are likely to receive no compensation at all. According to one lawyer, “The lawsuit [for the trapped miners] is in the millions – we are asking for a minimum of $1 million for each worker who is trapped in the mine… at least".

01:43
HEADLINE: Major adjustment ahead for freed Chilean miners CAPTION: After more than two months underground, the 33 miners trapped in a Chilean mine may have trouble adjusting to life on the outside and the inevitable changes they face. (Oct. 13) Just hours after the rescue of 33 men trapped in a Chilean mine began, signs emerged that adjusting to life at the surface may not be easy. Being stuck underground for two months, and a first-of-a-kind rescue to free them, have converted the miners from men who toil in obscurity into limelight sensations. Some, like Claudio Yanez, appear to be embrace the attention. After being rescued, he arrived to a hospital in nearby Copiapo. Much like a rock star, he waved to onlookers and journalists. However, his mother, who was waiting outside, was already worried about the next chapter in his life. She said she just hoped he wouldn't waste his new fame on what she called "stupid things." Beyond rock star status, for some there will likely be real difficulty adjusting to normal life. That is already the case for 19-year-old Jimmy Sanchez, the youngest of the miners. Hours after being rescued, Dr. Guillermo Swett evaluated Sanchez at the hospital. Swett said Sanchez spoke little, and appeared to be have trouble coming to grips with all that had happened. To be sure, there are also indications that the experience underground fortified some of the miners in ways that go beyond money. Swett, the doctor, also evaluated Mario Sepulveda. He says Sepulveda told him about feeling the presence of the devil during the ordeal. According to the doctor, Sepulveda says he fought with the devil, and won. SIGN OUT, in Copiapo. Of course, these men didn't ask to be trapped in a mine, or sign themselves up for a part in an incredible survival story. Just like everything in life, how they adjust will likely be a mixed bag, with some doing well and others less than well. But no matter what the future holds, their lives have undoubtedly been changed forever. APTN STORY NUMBER: 661333 SHOTLIST CHILE POOL 12 October 2010 1.

Chile Miners Rescue 21 Johnny Barrios Rojas Wife & mistress issues
 
06:15
http://www.facebook.com/NSOTD Miner Johnny Barrios Rojas, left, embraces his girlfriend Susana Valenzuela after being rescued from the collapsed San Jose gold and copper mine. His wife of 28 years Marta Salinas is thought to have not known of the affair with his mistress Susana Valenzuela until the two women ran into each other amid the tents pitched by family members anxiously holding vigil - and a very public spat ensued. More: Who'll play Johnny Barrios and Susana Valenzuela in Chilean Miners: The Movie? Mr Barrios, the 21st miner to emerge from the collapsed mine after 69 days, had sent a letter requesting both women to greet him when he was rescued, writing he wished them both to be friends. But the 50-year-old looked around sheepishly as he emerged from the rescue tube that elevated him to the Earth's surface, peering through sunglasses as mining officials in red shirts applauded loudly. More still: More amazing rescues. Among them, smiling widely and waiting for him to notice her stood Ms Valenzuela. When he did not, the round-faced strawberry blonde walked around to face Mr Barrios and gave him a long kiss and hug, weeping into the shoulder of his jumpsuit as he whispered into her ear. Ms Salinas was nowhere to be seen. She said: 'I am happy because he made it, it's a miracle of God. But I'm not going to see the rescue. 'He asked me to but it turns out that he also asked the other lady, and I am a decent woman. Things are clear: it's her or me.' Mr Barrios' sister told the Daily Telegraph: 'Marta is angry. She feels humiliated and she has said she is not going to see him... so in the end it's Susana's arms he will run into.' Weeks earlier, Mr Barrios' wife had ripped down a poster of her husband put up by his mistress. Defiant, the mistress taped the poster back up, and beneath several poems and prayers she had dedicated to him, she signed it 'Your Wife'.

A Miner Miracle: Five Years After the Chilean Rescue (2015)
 
42:14
Five years after the collapse of the San Jose gold and copper mine that trapped 33 miners for 69 days, CNN correspondent Rosa Flores travels to Chile to speak with three of the miners. She also speaks with the drillers who worked around the clock on their improbable and miraculous rescue. The hour-long CNN Special Report, A Miner Miracle: Five Years After the Chilean Rescue airs Tuesday, August 4, at 9pmET/PT on CNN and via CNNgo. Jorge Galleguillos can’t shake the tragedy from his mind. He was one of the 33 men trapped a half-mile beneath the hard rock of Chile’s Atacama Desert. He remembers praying to live while preparing to die. Finally, a small drill broke through to the men, allowing them to send an astounding message: ‘All 33 of us are alive.’ Their 69 days underground and their triumphant rescue stunned the world who watched it live on television. The men became globe-trotting celebrities with multiple movie and book offers; however, five years later, Galleguillos and most of the miners still live very humble and difficult lives. Many of the men battle demons and have trouble keeping steady work. And no one was ever held accountable for the collapse of the San Jose gold and copper mine. During the CNN Special Report, Flores interviews former Chilean President Sebastian Pinera, whose optimism for their rescue rallied a nation and the world. She also speaks with Jeff Hart, the drilling expert who successfully carved a tunnel through the earth and helped save the 33 courageous men.

Copiapo, Chile (CNN) -- One month ago, the San Jose copper and gold mine in Chile caved in, trapping 33 miners far underground. For the next 17 days, their families had no idea whether they were alive or dead. Here in their words, some of the wives, fathers and daughters think back to the first moments after learning of the accident and their efforts to keep hope alive. Lila Ramirez, wife of Mario Gomez: "I felt a lot of rage and pain and I felt powerless. I knew this was an accident waiting to happen. "Mario asked the bosses to take measures so the miners didn't run the risk of getting buried. But they never listened. A lot of the miners said they had heard the mountain groaning. One said he didn't want to go down the mine that day, he was afraid. But the boss said to him either you go down or I have five other people who will go down. "I never doubted that I had a lot of faith they were all alive and that they were all together and that's how they found them. All together!"

Sago Mine Disaster
 
43:34
Thirteen men sat in the best barricade they could build, enduring...hoping. They had used their single hour of oxygen from the only Self Contained Self Rescuer issued to them by the company. Their families waited outside living through one of the most difficult times of their lives, praying to see their loved ones once again. As time wore on, we would learn the ultimate fate of those men, those husbands, those fathers, those grandfathers, brothers, uncles, nephews. One was alive, barely holding on…the others had perished in the thick poisoned air of the mine. The miners of Sago were like so many of us. They took one of the few jobs available to them, jobs that would allow them to live in the places they had long called home, jobs that would pay enough to support their families. If only the company had given them more than one SCSR—if only there had been a law—but we know how much power money holds over the hearts of men. It would be the suffering and tragic loss of life of those 12 brave souls—the pain of constant loss felt by their families—that would finally see to it that every coal miner in the United States would never face the same crisis. Millions of Americans became outraged at the events that played out on their televisions, and the ensuing public outcry would accomplish a feat that has seldom been accomplished in the history of US coal mining—the power of coal industry lobbyists was outweighed by the voice of the public in the halls of government. Laws were passed and now additional SCSRs must be purchased by coal companies, underground safe havens must be built and supply miners with three day of oxygen, food, and water. Each time my crew passed a safe haven and SCSR stash on our way to the section, I would think of those men, I would think of their final hours. I would pay my respects to them in my own way and wish that the corruption of the coalfields had not taken their lives. I hope that other miners do the same and remember the day the miners of Sago perished and the hearts of their families were forever broken. May you all rest in peace. God Bless.

02:08
HEADLINE: Chile mine disaster exposes old family feuds CAPTION: The 33 Chilean miners have now been trapped underground for a full month, and they have to deal with their confinement for weeks, or perhaps months, until they can be rescued. The strain also has shaken the fault lines in their families above. (Sept. 5) Many families of the 33 trapped miners in Northern Chile live in this small mining town, called Copiapo. Like in families the world over, sometimes certain relationships can be difficult. Now those strains are starting to manifest themselves at the mine where the men are trapped, about a 45-minute drive through the Atacama desert. TRACK: While a fire warms their campsite, the icy feeling between Cristina Macias and her mother-in-law is as chilling as the desert nights. Both women are here to support the same man, Claudio Yanez, one of the trapped miners. But the women have never gotten along. And now they are fighting over who should get Yanez's salary and donations that have come from all over Chile. Cristina says she needs the money to support the couple's two daughters. She worries about her mother-in-law trying to get the donations, but says she won't get cheated. To handle such disputes, the local government has been forced to institute several measures. The miners were asked to send up a note designating who could get their $1,600 salary for August. Separate bank accounts have been set up for each miner, which no family member can touch. And social workers help settle disputes about which family members should get donations like food and household cleaners. Pamela Leiva, the head social worker at the camp, says settling disputes has required digging into the lives of the miners before the accident. And those those lives, just like lives the world over, can be complicated. There are brothers and sisters, mothers and fathers on both sides of a miner who don't get along, or who depended on his salary to survive. And of course, some miners have skeletons in their closets, which have been unexpectedly open. A few weeks ago one miner's wife and his lover were both keeping vigil at the camp. When the two realized they were both praying for the same man, they had a very public argument, and the wife tore down a poster with the miner's photo that the mistress had set up. Still, for all the difficulties, this tragedy has also brought families together. When it comes to their loved ones, everybody has the same hope that they will get out alive.

01:30
HEADLINE: Tense final hours ahead for Chilean miners CAPTION: The tension is building for 33 trapped Chilean miners and their families. With all eyes on Chile's effort to make sure that all of the miners are soon lifted to safety, the miners' physical and mental health is being fastidiously monitored. (Oct. 10) In only a few days, rescuers will try to free 33 men who have been trapped in a Chilean mine for more than two months. As that moment approaches, the mood of families at the surface has shifted from euphoria to anxiousness. The euphoria came Saturday, when a drill was able to blast a hole that will be wide enough to pluck the men out. Now comes the waiting, while engineers and rescuers put the final touches on the operation to start sometime next week. For Fernando Carrizo, who has two nephews among the miners, that means trying not to imagine the worst. He says he turns on the television and hears about things that could go wrong. Trying to avoid such a scenario, engineers are reenforcing parts of the the hole. STANDUP By all accounts, the casing process is going smoothly. Mining Minister Laurence Goldbourne says three of 16 pieces of casing have already been put in place. With every piece, the rescue gets closer. Brandon Fisher, president of the company that owns the drill that broke through to the men, nicely sums up the general feeling about the rescue.

Lobos' niece Patricia said it was "very emotional" to see her uncle emerge from the rescue shaft. Meanwhile, families of rescued miners were leaving the Camp Esperanza (Hope) site to meet the miners at Copaipo hospital. By early evening, 31 of the 33 miners had been pulled to freedom, and officials said they might even be able to bring everyone out by midnight. With remarkable speed - and flawless execution - miner after miner climbed into a cramped cage deep beneath the Chilean earth, was hoisted through 2,000 feet (609 metres) of rock and saw precious sunlight Wednesday after the longest underground entrapment in history. After 69 days underground, including two weeks during which they were feared dead, the men emerged to the cheers of exuberant Chileans and before the eyes of a transfixed globe. The operation picked up speed as the day went on, but each miner was greeted with the same boisterous applause from rescuers. The miners made the smooth ascent inside a capsule called Phoenix - 13 feet (3.9 metres) tall, barely wider than their shoulders and painted in the white, blue and red of the Chilean flag. It had a door that stuck occasionally, and its wheels needed lubricating at least once, but it worked exactly as planned.

Trapped Chilean miners sing national anthem in footage from inside mine
 
01:24
Video shot on camera sent down through emergency shaft shows men in good spirits Video from inside the mine where Chilean miners are trapped Link to this video The first video footage of the 33 Chilean miners who have been trapped underground for three weeks shows the men in good spirits, singing the national anthem and chanting, "Long live Chile, and long live the miners." The men shot the video with a camera sent down to them through a small shaft drilled to their emergency shelter in the San José mine. Five minutes of what is understood to be a 45-minute video were released late yesterday by the Chilean government. In the grainy, night-vision footage, the men appear stripped to the waist and with thick beards. One miner gives a guided tour of the small shelter where the men took refuge when a landslide trapped them inside the mine on 5 August. He explains that he and his colleagues have enough room to stand and lie down, points out the "little cup to brush our teeth", and the place where they pray each day. "We have everything organised," he says. The few items they have are carefully laid out: a first aid cabinet, shelves holding unidentified bottles, mats in a corner for rest. As the camera fixes on a table where dominoes have been laid out, the tour guide says that "this is where we entertain ourselves, where we play cards". He added: "We meet here every day. We plan, we have assemblies here every day so that all the decisions we make are based on the thoughts of all 33." Many of the miners appear in the video wearing their hard hats. As the camera pans to them, some flash peace signs, wave and smile. Others look groggy as if they have just woken up. "Greetings to my family," says one unidentified man. "Get us out of here soon, please." At one point the footage shows a close-up of a thermometer reading 29.5C (85F). According to psychiatrists, one of the miners demonstrates the kind of practical optimism key to the miners' high morale. "There are a large number of professionals who are going to help in the rescue efforts from down here," he says. Towards the end of the video, the men launch into a hearty rendition of the national anthem. The camera was sent down through a borehole used for communications. Another small hole that snakes down to the men's shelter is used for lowering food, while a third provides ventilation. What the men may not know is that the mining company that hired them is doing nothing to help the rescue attempt. The San Esteban company says it cannot afford to pay their wages and may go bankrupt. San Esteban is in such bad shape that it has neither the equipment nor the money to rescue the men. The escape tunnel, which will cost about £1.1m, will instead be drilled by Chile's state-owned mining company. Earlier this week, San Esteban lawyers said that with the mine shut down the company was at risk of bankruptcy. Senator Baldo Prokurica, who is on the Senate mining committee, said he had been pushing Congress for years to increase the number of inspectors for the state regulatory agency, Sernageomin. It had only 18, he said, which made regulating the country's several hundred mines a daunting task. "The government has abandoned [the regulator]," Prokurica said in an interview with the Associated Press. "If you look at the laws, they are good. We need to enforce the laws, not make more laws or increase fines." President Sebastian Piñera has fired top regulators and created a commission to investigate the accident and the agency. Since the collapse, the agency has shut down at least 18 small mines for safety violations, a possible sign that lax safety measures were open secrets at many mines. Yesterday, the first of many expected lawsuits against San Esteban and the government were filed, and a judge ordered the retention of £1.2m of company money in anticipation of the suits. Despite advances in technology and increased emphasis on safety, at least publicly, mining remains a dangerous profession. Since 2000, an average of 34 people have died every year in mining accidents in Chile, with a high of 43 in 2008, according to a review of Sernageomin data.

HEADLINE: Chile miners mark 2 months trapped underground --------------------------------------- CAPTION: Families of the 33 miners trapped in Chile marked on Tuesday the end of the second month since the miners became trapped, a day after the country's president said they were "very close" to being rescued. (Oct. 5) ---------------------------------------- [Notes:ANCHOR VOICE] Even though two months have passed since 33 miners became trapped at the San Jose mine in northern Chile, excitement is building for the families who are praying for their rescue. Chile's president said his government is getting closer to pulling the miners to safety -- and he hopes to see the rescue in-person before he makes an overseas trip to Europe in the middle of the month. This family member says it's been two months that we have been waiting for them. She says, we are hopeful that they will be brought out any moment now. When the miners were found alive in early August, the government initially predicted the miners would not be rescued until December. But the drilling has gone well enough to move the date ahead -- and just last week, the government predicted a late October rescue. Meanwhile -- Chile's Interior Minister objected to claims that politics would take priority over rescuing the men safely. Tuesday, he said the decision on when to start the operation has nothing to do with politics. The only criteria are the well being of the miners and their health, he said --- and what the technicians and professionals recommend.

Many people have pointed out symbolism in the recent Chilean mine incident involving 33 men being trapped for a record 69 days. I'm glad those men were ok and rejoice with them and their families. I also appreciate all those who were engaged with sincere compassion. However, this incident is a sign from God that should be taken as a VERY SERIOUS WARNING!

Wide of mine site STORYLINE After more than two months trapped deep in a Chilean mine, 33 miners are enjoying Sunday tantalisingly close to rescue. Drillers have completed an escape shaft, and Chile's mining minister says a video inspection shows the hole's walls are firm enough to allow the men to be hoisted out as early as Wednesday. Officials said late on Saturday that workers first must reinforce the top few hundred feet (almost 100 meters) of the tunnel and had begun welding steel pipes for that purpose. The completion of the 28-inch (71-centimetre)-diameter escape shaft on Saturday morning caused bedlam in the tent city known as "Camp Hope," where the miners' relatives had held vigil for an agonising 66 days since a cave-in sealed off the gold and copper mine on 5 August. Miners videotaped the piston-powered hammer drill's breakthrough at 2,041 feet (622 meters) underground and could be seen cheering and embracing, the drillers said. On the surface, the rescuers chanted, danced and sprayed champagne so excitedly that some of their hardhats tumbled off. Later, a video inspection of the shaft gave rescuers enough confidence in the tunnel's stability that they decided they will encase only its first 315 feet (96 meters). The plan is to insert 16 sections of half-inch (1.27 centimetre)-thick steel pipe into the top of the hole, which curves like a waterfall at first before becoming nearly vertical for most of its descent into the chamber deep in the mine. That work would begin immediately, Mining Minister Laurence Golborne said. Then an escape capsule built by Chilean naval engineers, its spring-loaded wheels pressing against the hole's walls, can be lowered into it via a winch and the trapped miners brought up one by one. Golborne and other government officials had insisted that determining whether to encase the whole shaft, only part of it, or none of it, would be a technical decision, based on the evidence and the expertise of a team of eight geologists and mining engineers. Encasing the full shaft would have added another week or so before the rescue could begin - if it could actually be done. The political consequences were inescapable. Chile's success story would evaporate if a miner should get stuck on the way up for reasons that might have been avoided. Some miners' families wanted the entire shaft lined with pipe, but some engineers involved said the risk of the capsule getting jammed in the un-reinforced hole was less than the risk of the pipes getting jammed and ruining their hard-won exit route. Many experts doubted whether encasing the entire shaft was even possible. Health Minister Jaime Manalich said the miners' anxiety is growing about starting their rescue, an operation that should take about a day-and-a-half to complete as they are pulled out one by one in a specially built capsule. Manalich also confirmed that a list has been drawn up suggesting the order in which the 33 miners should be rescued. The final order will be determined by a Navy special forces paramedic who will be lowered into the mine to prepare the men for their journey. The completion of the escape shaft thrilled Chileans, who have come to see the rescue drama as a test of the nation's character and pride.

Wide of site STORYLINE The families of 33 Chilean miners trapped underground after a shaft collapsed at the mine in Copiapo where they were working marked the one month anniversary of their ordeal on Sunday. On August 5, a landslide at the gold and copper mine in the Atacama desert caused a tunnel to collapse and entombed the men more than 2,200 feet (67.6 metres) below ground. It took 17 days for rescuers to make their first contact with the miners and find out they were all alive and well. Families have been holding a vigil by camping out close to the mine, sending messages to their loved ones to keep their spirits up. On Saturday they managed to talk via a video link with their relatives below ground. A miner's sister, who is living at the camp, said she got a letter from her brother saying that he's "happy to know that we are here and that it gives them courage." Alberto Avalos, who has two relatives trapped, Florencio and Renan Avalos Silva, said that he couldn't imagine what they were going through. "It is hard to imagine it, being 700 and something metres underground, being buried down there, a month...yes, things become more complicated," he said. Back up drills were also on site to help dig the vital rescue tunnel. Doctors, psychologists, authorities and relatives have avoided - on purpose - mentioning how many weeks or months the rescue will take in any communication they have had with the trapped miners. Engineers estimated that digging a tunnel big enough to extract the miners could take up to four months if everything goes according to plan.

Chile mine,massive drill arrives onsite
 
01:11
25 August 2010 Last updated at 22:56 Chile's trapped miners told to exercise and diet Supplies to be sent down to miners The miners are being supplied with glucose and rehydration tablets The 33 Chilean miners trapped deep underground are being put on a special regimen to ensure they survive what could be months underground. The programme is also meant to ensure they are fit enough to be pulled up the rescue shaft being drilled for them. The shaft will be about 66cm (26 inches) wide and reach about 700m (765 yards) below ground. The men, trapped since 5 August, have not been told that their rescue could take up to four months. Continue reading the main story Related stories * Realism amid elation at Chile mine drama * In pictures: Chileans rejoice and pray Officials have avoided telling the men out of concern for their psychological welfare. The miners have urged all efforts to be made to free them by 18 September, Chile's Independence Day. Chile's health minister said the surface team wants the trapped miners to set up routines, entertain themselves and attempt to simulate day and night. "The space they're in actually has about two kilometres [1.24 miles] of galleries to walk around in," said Dr Jaime Manalich. The BBC's Gideon Long says parts for a massive drill are arriving on site "We're hoping to define a secure area where they can establish various places - one for resting and sleeping, one for diversion, one for food, another for work." The US space agency Nasa has been called upon for its expertise keeping astronauts alive and well on long missions. The miners, who spent 17 days surviving on emergency supplies designed for a couple of days, have been receiving glucose and rehydration tablets lowered down a narrow shaft. Other supplies included small lights, eye patches and medicine. An intercom cable has been dropped to them for communications. The leader of the trapped miners pleaded with Chile's President Sebastian Pinera to get them "out of this hell". Days of growing despair turned to jubilation on Sunday when rescuers made contact with the miners via a probe lowered into the mine. The miners were trapped when the main access tunnel collapsed at the San Jose mine in Copiapo, about 725km (450 miles) north of the capital, Santiago. They are located 7km (4.5 miles) into the winding mine, where they are sheltering in a 50 sq m side-chamber off one of the main passages. President Pinera has said every effort will be made to rescue the men. graphic

As has been said, they're stable and have received letters of support." 7. Crowd walking through camp 8. Soldiers standing with relatives 9. Various of woman reading letter by torchlight STORYLINE Rescue workers and relatives at Chile's San Jose mine cheered the arrival on Tuesday of the last piece of an enormous machine with diamond-tipped drills that will try to rescue 33 miners who have been trapped deep underground for 19 days. The machine, carried on a truck festooned with Chilean flags, is capable of carving a 26-inch (66-centimetre) -wide tunnel through solid rock and boring at about 65 feet (20 metres). It was donated by the state-owned Codelco copper company. Just setting it up will take at least three more days. The miners have settled in for a long wait until a tunnel wide enough to pull them out can be carved through a half-mile of solid rock. Chilean President Sebastian Pinera vowed not to abandon the trapped miners in a telephone conversation Tuesday afternoon with Luis Urzua, the 54-year-old shift foreman who has been the miners' leader. The miners were plunged into darkness by the August 5 collapse of the main shaft of a gold and silver mine that runs like a corkscrew for more than 4 miles (7 kilometres) under a barren mountain in northern Chile's Atacama Desert. They gained contact with the outside world Sunday when rescuers drilled a narrow bore-hole down to their living-room-sized shelter after seven failed attempts. The miners said they conserved the use of their helmet lamps, their only source of light other than a handful of vehicles whose engines contaminate the air supply. They fired up a bulldozer to carve into a natural water deposit, but otherwise minimised using the vehicles. The miners can still reach many chambers and access ramps in the lower reaches of the mine, and have used a separate area some distance from their reinforced emergency refuge as their bathroom. But they have mostly stayed in the refuge, where they knew rescuers would try to reach them. The room has become stiflingly hot and stuffy. Leaving it allows them to breathe better air, but wandering too far is risky in the unstable mine, which has suffered several rock collapses since the initial accident. Rescue efforts advanced considerably on Tuesday as a third bore-hole prepared to break through to the miners, and a huge machine arrived from central Chile for carving a tunnel just wide enough for the miners to be pulled out one-by-one. Andres Sougarret, the rescue effort's leader, estimated it would take three to four months to get the men out. Meanwhile, three 6-inch-wide (15-centimetre) shafts will serve as the miners' "umbilical cords" - one for supplies, another for communications and a third to guarantee their air supply. A steady flow of emergency supplies was sent down Tuesday in a rocket-shaped metal tube called a "paloma," Spanish for dove. The paloma is 5� feet (1.6 metres) long and takes a full hour to descend through the bore-hole. entrance, where cold nights end in a chilly fog. There's a bonfire to keep warm, and barbecue and other food donated by the local government in a common tent.
