Chile investigates the impact of a crater in a mine that leaves a gigantic sinkhole

-

Minera Candelaria, one of the companies dedicated to the exploitation of copper in the north of Chile, interrupted its activities after the sudden appearance of a huge sinkhole 32 meters in diameter and 64 meters deep that threatens a populated area in the Tierra Amarilla region, in the Atacama desert. The suspension of activity in the area occurs after the Chilean National Geology and Mining Service (Sernageomin) initiated an official investigation, which if malicious could include serious sanctions. The sinkhole came to light at the beginning of the week after a complaint from the inhabitants of this area of ​​the Atacama desert, but it was not until the middle of the week that Sernageomin sent teams to evaluate the evolution of the abyss and asked the copper company to limit and prevent access to the area. The first investigations suggest that it could be the collapse of a mansion or cavern that appears once all the ore is extracted. The mining company assured on Wednesday that everything was under control, that it did not know the reasons for the ” detachment”, he avoided linking it to the “in-depth” work of his exploitation and offered his collaboration. However, the mayor of Tierra Amarilla, Cristóbal Zúñiga, insisted this Friday on his concern and stressed that it is not new, since the community has been denouncing for years the danger of living in an area surrounded by mining deposits that work at great depths. Tierras Amarillas is a community in the so-called “Little North” of Chile, located about 800 kilometers north of the capital, in the Atacama region, which concentrates a large number of mining operations, mainly copper.
