Potrerillos of yesterday - Potrerillos del ayer- Codelco - Mining Company of Potrerillos
Potrerillos of yesterday The Potrerillos deposit was located in the desert of Atacama to 125 kilometers to the east of the port of Chañaral and to a height of 2,900 meters on the level of the sea. By 1906 the deposit was exploited in a traditional way by the Mining Company of Potrerillos, by Enrique Echeverría. When in 1910 William Braden moved away from El Teniente, his interest was concentrated in Potrerillos, acquiring in 1913 the deposit. Engineer Braden estimated that Potrerillos was an area capable of rivaling Chuquicamata. However, new drilling yielded disappointing results. Faced with such conclusions, Braden sold Potrerillos in January 1916 to the American conglomerate Anaconda Copper Company, which organized the Andes Copper Mining Company as its subsidiary to exploit the mineral. In charge of the deposit was put to the engineer L.R. Wallace, who opted to mine the mine underground, through the system of sinking blocks. For the treatment of the minerals would raise a plant to benefit sulfides, and another of leaching, to treat the oxides. Also contemplated a thermoelectric plant located in the new port of Barquitos, that would be constructed next to Chañaral. Eight kilometers from the mine would rise the main mining camp, while the water would be brought from the Andes by means of a pipe. Finally, the transportation problem would be solved by constructing a railroad from the mine to the state railroad station in Pueblo Hundido, which in turn reached the port of Chañaral. At the end of 1917 the first works began, those that in 1919 were already quite advanced. However at the end of that year, the copper market was affected by the post-war crisis, which led to the Anaconda to paralyze the work to a great extent. In 1925 the work was resumed under the direction of William Wraith, so that the following year the sulphide plant was ready, and in 1928 the leach plant. By 1929 Potrerillos was already in full operation, producing 73,800 tons of fine copper. At the end of the 1940s the depletion of the Potrerillos deposit began. Facing this situation Anaconda Copper Company began an exploration program in search of some deposit near the metallurgical facilities in order to take advantage of the existing infrastructure. Finally, a few years after the deadly date, the Indio Muerto deposit was discovered, which would allow the Andes Copper Mining Company to survive as a manager of the new mineral that was rightly called El Salvador. _________________________________________________________________ El yacimiento de Potrerillos estaba ubicado en el desierto de Atacama a 125 kilómetros al oriente del puerto de Chañaral y a una altura de 2.900 metros sobre el nivel del mar.

2007 Chile   North, Désert de L' Atacama, Chuquicamata, Codelco, Cuivre, Cobre
Le Plus Grand Trou du Monde : 4 kilomètres de diamètre et 1 kilomètre de profondeur WIKIPEDIA : La mine de Chuquicamata, au Chili, est la plus grande mine de cuivre à ciel ouvert du monde. Située dans le désert d'Atacama au nord du Chili à 15 km de la ville de Calama et à 250 km au nord-est d'Antofagasta, cette mine contient à elle seule 13 % des réserves de cuivre du monde. La mine a une forme elliptique, sa superficie est d'environ 8 km² et sa profondeur atteint par endroit plus de 850 m, ce qui en fait la deuxième mine à ciel ouvert la plus profonde du monde après la mine de Bingham Canyon (1,21 km de profondeur) dans l'Utah aux États-Unis. Elle appartient au groupe d'État chilien Codelco. La production de la mine a été d'environ 1 200 000 tonnes de cuivre en 2007 auquel se rajoutent 125 000 tonnes du site de Radomiro Tomić situé à 7 km au nord. ... En 1912, l'entreprise Guggenheim Bros acquiert les terrains de la mine de Chuquicamata. La construction débuta en février 1913 et la production démarra en mars 1915. Le 18 mai 1915, la première barre de cuivre de l'histoire contemporaine de la mine fut produite. Guggenheim Bros continua l'exploitation de la mine sous les noms Chilean Exploration Co, Chile Copper Co., et Anaconda Copper company. jusqu'à la nationalisation de l'extraction de cuivre par le gouvernement de Salvador Allende vers les années 1971-1972. Actuellement, l'exploitation de la mine est assurée par Codelco, entreprise détenue à 100 % par l'État chilien.

American Rescue Team in Chile -Jeff Hart
In August 5, 2010, the San Jose Mine in Chile collapsed and trapped 33 miners under more than 2,000 ft. The owners of the mine lacked the resources and equipment to save those men, so the government of Chile asked the state-owned Codelco mining company to take the lead. Codelco, incapable of providing the best rescue effort, turned to the American-Chilean company Geotec Boyles Bros., an affiliate to Layne Christensen Co., to handle the rescue operation. Geotec assembled the best group of people for this mission, they called in engineers from two Pennsylvania companies -- Schramm Inc., maker the T130 drill rigs, and Center Rock Inc., which makes the drill bits, and the best drillers in the world, specialized in the use of the T-130 drill. One of the them is Jeff Hart, from Denver, Colorado who was called in from Afghanistan. He could not afford to make a mistake, there were human lives at risk, and after weeks of being drilling day and night, he successfully broke into the mine on Saturday, October 9 2010. I was very disappointed not to hear the president of Chile Sebastian Piñera say one word of gratitude toward the Americans involved in this rescue effort during the pulling out of the first miners, but Americans didn't really care about that, all they care was to respond to the call when the people of Chile needed them, as Americans are always the first ones to respond when tragedy and disaster strike anywhere in the world, providing any kind of aid or their best. Just a note for those who "feel right" when they hate Americans, any American. The whole rescue team: James Stefanic, operations manager, Geotec; Jorge Herrera, helper, Layne; Mat Staffel, drill operator, Layne; Eugenio Eguiguren, executive vice president international, Geotec; Doug Reeves, helper, Layne; Pedro Buttazzoni, CEO, Geotec; Jeff Hart, driller, Layne; and Raul Lyon, executive vice president for Chile, Geotec; Brandon Fisher, owner of Center Rock Inc

Chile Copper Mine Water Use Seen Rising Rapidly in Next Decade
Water consumption in Chile's vast copper mining industry is set to rise 66 percent by 2025, with companies increasingly turning to seawater to meet mine demand, a study by state copper commission Cochilco showed on Tuesday. Most of the copper mines in Chile are located in the Atacama, the world's driest desert, and a series of droughts has raised concerns about water use in the country. Seawater desalination plants are forecast to cover a third of water demand by miners in 10 years' time, from around 9 percent currently, according to Cochilco. http://feeds.reuters.com/~r/reuters/environment/~3/2jli9BTnc5Y/story01.htm http://www.wochit.com

Chile: Miners strike causes world copper prices to soar
1. M/S Strikers around bonfire 2. W/S Picket on highway Chile: Miners strike causes world copper prices to soar Striking workers at the Andina copper mine north of Chile's capital Santiago picketed the highway leading to the mine on Tuesday as part of a 24-hour worker's strike across the publicly-owned copper industry. Copper prices spiked worldwide as operations at the world's largest copper producer Codelco ground to a halt. Workers at the state mining company downed tools demanding a revision of Codelco's pension and healthcare policies, changes to local labour laws and the renationalisation of privatised copper assets. Employees in the dangerous industry fear cuts to their pay and benefits, as well as the threat of increasing use of sub-contracted labourers with fewer rights. The price of copper rose for a second day at the London Metal Exchange on Tuesday in anticipation of the strike, as copper for delivery in three months climbed more than a whole percentage point to $7,532 (€5,757) per metric tonne. Work in private mines, including sites operated by multinational companies BHP Billiton, Anglo American and Antofagasta Minerals continued as normal, as workers took only partial strike action. Miners at the world's largest copper mine, BHP Billiton's Escondida facility in the Atacama Desert, delayed the start of an 8 am shift by two hours while workers at Anglo American's Los Broncos mine blocked the supply road. Codelco currently owns the world's largest copper reserves, and is expected to produce 1.7 million tonnes of copper this year, over a third of the global copper supply.

Positive Results Despite Strikes and Production Cuts - Mining Minutes - Kitco News
Kitco News discusses strikes, production cuts as well as full year results in the mining industry. We look into mining companies Codelco, Newcrest Mining Limited, Centamin PLC and Excellon Resources Inc. In Chile, Codelco, the world's leading copper producer, has had issues with copper exports as strikes block the country's main ports. Codelco's Radomiro Tomic mine temporarily suspended operations due to a worker's recent death onsite. Newcrest, Australia's largest gold miner, has trimmed its gold production expectations due to damages at its Papua New Guinea mine. The mine is expected to operate at reduced capacity for the next 5-7 weeks. Centamin released strong production results in 2012 reporting 263,000 ounces of gold for the year. The company still faces issues with the Egyptian government regarding its Sukari mine but is now focusing on getting exploration licenses in Ethiopia. Excellon is well positioned despite its La Platosa mine being shut down for about 3 months due to a mine blockade. Kitco News, April 1, 2013.

Sewell, Mining Town in The Andes | The City of Stairs, Chile
Sewell, Mining Town in The Andes | The City of Stairs, Chile The mining town of Sewell is located on the slopes of the Andes on Cerro Negro at an altitude of between 2,000 and 2,500 metres. It is 50 miles south of Santiago and 26 miles up the mountain from Rancagua. First called El Teniente, the town was once an isolated copper mine but is now an uninhabited historical site and is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. It has been recognized as a great cultural and architectural work, a unique mountain community that defied the elements and the difficulties to prosper: the only one like it in Chile. Sewell is known as the "city of stairs", housed miners and employees who worked in what was the world's largest underground mine, El Teniente. Copper deposits were known to exist at el Teniente from the 15th century when raw materials were exported by the Spanish. In 1897 the owner of the mining rights initiated a survey of the copper seams and discovered a huge potential for extracting copper which would require great investment. An approach was made in 1903 to the North American mining engineer William Braden. Braden arrived in Chile in 1904 and began acquiring the property. Together with E W Nash, president of the American Smelting Company and Barton Sewell, the founder and Vice-President they created the Braden Copper Company in 1904. In 1905 they bought the Chilean copper mine. In 1915 the town was re-named Sewell after Barton Sewell the company’s first president. Over the next two years the infrastructure was developed and machinery was imported from the United States. By 1906 the first mill and concentrator had been erected, a lift and electricity generator installed. The installations were cutting edge technology of the day to be used in an extremely remote and hostile environment. Mining was officially authorised to begin in 1905. A narrow gauge railroad line between Sewell and Rancagua was started in 1907 and was in full use by 1911. The operation base and administrative headquarters were located at Rancagua which rapidly developed into a town. A new town was developed at Sewell where the mine was located. Electricity was generated at Coya and the huge buckets of the copper ore snaked down the hill to the smelted works at Caletones. By 1918 the Sewell mining camp housed 14,000 people, but was largely abandoned in the 1970s. The town was built on a terrain too steep for wheeled vehicles around a large central staircase rising from the railway station. Along its route formal squares of irregular shape with ornamental trees and plants constituted the main public spaces or squares of the town. Off the central staircase, paths ran along the contours leading to smaller squares and secondary staircases linking the town’s different levels. The buildings lining the streets are timber, often painted in vivid green, yellow, red and blue. By the early 1960s it had a population of 16,000, men, women and children of many nationalities. Despite all goods having to be brought in by narrow gauge railroad the camp was a complete city in itself. The railroad was also the only way in for the workers and their families. Sewell was known as the city of stairs as there were no roads. The mine became the largest and deepest underground mine in the world, with about nine hundred miles of underground galleries. After the death of Barton Sewell in 1915, the Guggenheim brothers began to open new copper mines in the north of Chile and took control of the Braden Copper Company, by 1916 they owned 95 percent of the company. Despite being prosperous, conditions at the mine were hard and dangerous. In 1945 a major tragedy occurred when a fire in the entrance to the mine caused smoke to enter the galleries below causing the deaths of 355 workers. This led to a government investigation and a national debate on safety legislation and the power wielded by foreign companies. The company responded by developing a large department for industrial safety. By the 1950s Chile had become the second largest copper producer in the world. In 1967 the Chilean government gained a 51% share of the mine and in 1971 the industry was nationalised and the company became a division of the Copper Corporation of Chile. This brought changes and a decision was taken to move the population of Sewell further down the valley, in order to provide better facilities and soon after 1977 it was dismantled. Sewell is the only mountain industrial mining settlement of considerable size of the 20th century to have been built for year-round use. A bridge in the mining town of Sewell, atop the Andes mountains some hundred kilometers south of Santiago, the capital city of Chile.

SOUNDBITE: (Spanish) Sebastian Pinera, Chile''s President-elect: "It''s a modification that looks to end the 10 percent discount of Codelco''s gross profits to finance our armed forces. The idea is to replace this system with a stable and adequate financing system that is part of our national budget." 5. Cutaway of journalist 6. Journalist asking question 7. SOUNDBITE: (Spanish) Sebastian Pinera, Chile''s President-elect "Chile has signed international agreements that establish that certain crimes against humanity are unproscribable and do not qualify under any amnesty. Chile has always respected international agreements and it respects its own laws and that will continue to be the case during our government." 8. Various of journalists 9. SOUNDBITE: (Spanish) Sebastian Pinera, Chile''s President-elect: "I have many differences with the way public issues are being handled in Venezuela and I must say those differences are deeply rooted and have to do with the way democracy and the economic model are conceived of there." 10. Pinera leaving 11. Pinera and wife shaking hands with President Michelle Bachelet 12. Various of newspaper headlines 13. Local resident Jean Vazquez looking at newspaper headlines 14. SOUNDBITE (Spanish) Jean Vazquez, Vox Pop: "I don''t like him, I never liked him. Pinera is very indecisive, he doesn''t know to which side he is going. He is not a person who has a clear political colour." 15. Local residents walking on street STORYLINE: President-elect Sebastian Pinera has said he plans major changes for Chile''s state copper giant Codelco to bring in fresh capital and boost its productivity. But the pro-free market businessman said on Monday Codelco will remain a state company during his government and any private participation would require constitutional reform as well as broad agreement from Chileans. At the start of his election campaign, Pinera had proposed selling up to 20 percent of Codelco, a move sure to generate resistance from powerful mining unions. Pinera, who beat former President Eduardo Frei in Sunday''s presidential runoff, said he will press forward with plans to revoke a law requiring that 10 percent of Codelco''s sales go to the armed forces. He said the fresh capital would come from the state as well as from the elimination of the quota reserved for the armed forces. "The idea is to replace this system with a stable and adequate financing system that is part of our national budget," Pinera told a news conference on Monday. The money is needed to increase exploration, extract known reserves and improve technology. He said he is studying possible changes to the mining royalties paid by private mine companies in Chile. Codelco last year produced 1.55 (m) million metric tons of copper, or about four percent of world output. Pinera''s election victory on Sunday night ends two decades of uninterrupted rule by the centre-left coalition, and returns to power the same political parties that provided civic support for Augusto Pinochet''s brutal 1973-1990 dictatorship. That legacy alone is bound to complicate relations with Argentina, whose leader has made prosecuting human rights violators a centre piece of her presidency, and Uruguay, which just elected a former leftist guerrilla as its president. According to Pinera''s campaign web site, his foreign policy goals include peacefully resolving conflicts, reaching strategic accords and promoting Latin American integration while protecting Chile''s sovereignty and national identity.

We all felt very emotional, I saw tears in everyone's eyes. And this reflected the work that culminated in the success when the last rescue worker came out.

SOUNDBITE: (Spanish), Manuel Gonzalez, last rescue worker to come out: "Yeah my gesture was to show that the mission was accomplished and to thank all of you who participated, thanks to all of our bosses. As I was saying to my brother Montesinos, this was the result of the work of everybody. From the cleaning people that brought water, to the mining minister to the president. We accomplished a task that shows the kind of organisation and disciplining that we are capable of in this country, when we set our minds to it." 11. Pan of rescue workers and Golborne giving the thumbs up 12. Wide of Gonzalez and other rescue workers hugging STORYLINE Officials in Chile are reflecting on the amazing journey that the country's 33 miners went through, rescued after being trapped for 69 days in the San Jose Mine. Mining Minister Laurence Golborne said on Thursday that everybody shed tears when the miners were pulled out. "We all felt very emotional," he said. "And this reflected the work that culminated in the success when the last rescue worker out. When Manuel Gonzales reached the surface, we felt uncontrollable happiness despite being so tired." Gonzales - the first rescue worker down and the last up - said on Thursday that he was very confident about the rescue mission. "We had rehearsed all week even though it was in a smaller space. But we rehearsed and we knew everything was going to be ok." Gonzales also spoke about the banner the rescue miners opened after the last miner was pulled to safety. Gonzales said the "Mission Accomplished" banner was a gesture "to thank everyone who participated". The mine rescue expert with Chile's state-owned Codelco copper company talked the men through the final hours inside the mine. Then, he spent 26 minutes alone down below before he strapped himself into the capsule for the ride up.

SOUNDBITE: (Spanish) Camila Merino, Chilean Ministry of Labour: "They haven't got their settlement from the mining company and that is something we are trying to sort out but we see that company has some serious problems, the mine is going to be closed for a long time so it is important to start seeing other things, that they start looking for new jobs. The issue of the their contractual situation should be solved soon." 6. Miners meeting with various possible employers 7.

SOUNDBITE: (Spanish) Rene Aguilar, rescue team coordinator: "And I'd like to repeat once more - as I have said many times during the past weeks - that the mine rescue alternative is not viable. There is an enormous block of 700-thousand tons - which is very unstable - so any tentative of entering the mine (through the main entrance) implies a danger for the lives of the people who want to carry out that operation. And what's most worrying is what this information could mean for the miners down there." 13. Mid of pieces of machinery for Plan C arriving in trucks to the mine 14. People with flags cheering and waving while trucks passing by 15. Mid of the same 16. People holding banner between them and waving with flags as trucks passing by STORYLINE: The Chilean Labour Ministry organised job fair on Monday to help the workers at the San Jose mine find new employment as workers fear the mine is unlikely to reopen. Besides the 33 men trapped underground, another 317 people worked - directly or indirectly - at the San Jose mine. Around 15 mining companies answered the authorities' call and have offered jobs to at least 300 people, according to the Labour ministry. Camila Merino, the head of the ministry, also said they were trying to solve the current contractual situation of all the workers - still employed by San Esteban Primera mining company. "They haven't got their settlement form the mining company and that is something we are trying to sort out but we see that company has some serious problems", she said. The company has said it can't afford to pay their salaries and may go bankrupt and is in such bad shape that it has neither the equipment nor the money to rescue the 33 men. It is Chile's state-owned mining company, CODELCO, is in charge of digging the escape tunnel, which will cost about 1.7 (m) million US Dollars. On Monday only one of three drilling efforts was operational - the so-called Plan A drill, reaching down to 750 feet (230 meters). But it too must stop at 820 feet (250 meters), for maintenance work. Plan B, a higher-velocity drill that will carve out a narrower escape tunnel, has been silenced since last week, when it struck an iron support beam for the mine and its drill bit shattered into small pieces. A third drill, Plan C, is still days away from starting its work. Rescuers have already tried three times to use magnets to remove pieces of the shattered second drill and iron beam from the hole. With frustration growing, so is pressure for alternative solutions.

Miners strike in Chile

Copper Mining and Smelting 1944 Chile
This clip shows the Chuquicamata mine, one of the biggest open pit copper mines in the world, located in the north of Chile. The mine was owned and operated by the Anaconda Copper Mining Company. These mines were mainly self-contained and self-sustaining settlements. They were complete with their own cities to house the workers, their own water and electrical plants, schools, stores, railways, and even in certain cases their own police forces. Production for many years came from the oxidized capping of the orebody which merely required leaching and then electrowinning of the copper, but by 1951 the oxidised reserves were largely exhausted and the company built a mill, flotation plant and smelter to treat the huge reserves of underlying supergene copper sulfides. The electrowinning processes uses electroplating on a large scale for the economical and straightforward purification of non-ferrous metals. A current is passed from an inert anode through a liquid leach solution containin

(11 Sep 1976) There was a spate of bombings early on Saturday Morning (Sept 11) in the italian capital of Rome. United States, Brazilian, Chilean And Christian Lebanese properties were damaged in the bombings, which caused a city- wide police alert. In possibly related incidents, fire-bombs caused minor damage to two branches of the Banca Commerciala Italiana. Leaflets left in the area accused the bank of "financing the fascist regime of (Chilean President Augusto) Pinochet" by means of a loan to Chile's Codelco copper mining company. Brazilian interests were presumably selected as a target because of the alleged political oppression in that country. A bomb at the Chilean embassy to the holy see, which caused extensive damage, could be seen in the context of the third anniversary of the military coup in chile which overthrew President Salvador Allende, and resulted in his death You can license this story through AP Archive: http://www.aparchive.com/metadata/youtube/b229c78beafe5aa157c963078cf9cf31 Find out more about AP Archive: http://www.aparchive.com/HowWeWork
