Peace for the Soul

A common space for harmonic peacemakers

I am writing a few words just to wish peace and wisdom to the technicians who will get all the miners out of the mine next Wednesday.

All Chilean people have been waiting for this to happen,

Blessings for them and their families

They may finally be free in just a few days, but the trapped Chile miners now face the most dangerous and difficult part of their incarceration: their rescue.


After 69 days of brotherhood and solidarity, each miner will be on their own for up to an hour in the small and claustrophobic rescue capsule.

And, Chile's health minister Jaime Manalich has warned, that could be when panic attacks, hypertension and heart problems may strike, bringing a tragic end to a drama that has gripped the world's media.

"This travel time will be the first time in several weeks that these miners are going to be completely alone," Mr Manalich told a press conference.

"That's the main risk we face.

"We are prepared for that particular time as the most difficult one."

The rescue is due to begin on Wednesday and could continue until Friday.

But the revelations in the press conference have changed the atmosphere among families awaiting the return of their loved ones, US correspondent Robert Nisbet says from the site of the San Jose mine.

Jubilation and anticipation have been replaced by a sense of foreboding and anxiety as news of the medical issues facing the rescue attempt reached them.

"Many of the families are suffering a little as they were celebrating this breakthrough to the chamber last night," Nisbet said.

Nisbet says rescuers have taken a series of measures to ensure each miner's journey to the surface will be as comfortable and as risk-free as can be.

Each miner has been profiled and will receive a liquid diet before they enter the rescue capsule 600 metres below the surface to reduce the chances of nausea.

A camera will focus on their faces to ensure they are not suffering any ill-health and the men will be able to talk to their rescuers on the surface if they feel unwell.

They will also have access to an oxygen mask in case they feel faint in the enclosed space.

The journey to the surface will be even more difficult for the men because the capsule will spin some 10 to 12 times on its way to the top.

"Crucial details but also quite nerve-racking for the families because it's beginning to sink in that they have broken through to the chamber but they have to make the difficult ascent," Nisbet said.

Each miner will then visit a triage centre, a field hospital and will get to meet a couple of members of their family before they are placed in hospital for 48 hours to recover from their ordeal.

After that the magnitude of what the miners have suffered together will begin to sink in.

Rescuers in Chile hope to start evacuating 33 trapped miners on Wednesday - but details of the rescue operation have caused unease among families.

Mining minister Laurence Golborne announced the date after the drilling of an escape shaft was completed.

"We hope to start the evacuation process on Wednesday," he told reporters at the collapsed gold and copper mine, after briefing the miners' relatives.

But the country's health minister has warned that the rescue operation will be the most dangerous part of the men's two-month incarceration 600 metres below the ground.

The 33 men have been trapped for 66 days so far, setting a world record for the length of time workers have survived underground after a mining accident.

They are in remarkably good health, although some have developed skin infections.

Only part of a nearly 2,050ft-long escape shaft will be reinforced.

The rest of it is exposed rock and the rescue team has decided it is strong enough for the miners to be hauled up to the surface.

The mining minister said work was beginning immediately to weld pipes together to line the shaft.

The miners will be hoisted to the surface one at a time in capsules, which are just wider than a man's shoulders, in one of the most complex rescue attempts in mining history.

They will wear special tinted glasses to avoid damaging their eyes as they emerge into the daylight after their long stay in a dimly-lit tunnel.

The San Jose mine, near Copiapo, collapsed on August 5.

The South American nation celebrated when all 33 men were located 17 days later.

Rescuers have been passing high-energy gels, water and food down narrow ducts to keep the miners alive.

We do believe in the strength of the miners .
We will be all one when they will be emerging from the depth of the earth.
Although we live in a small country. We have a big heart and soul.
