PERU-MINING-ACCIDENT
RTR30JZN
10 Apr. 2012
Ica, Peru
Flor Choque and her son Josue Tapia, relatives of three trapped miners, Javier Tapia, Santiago Tapia and Carlos Huamani, camp outside the rescue operation at Cabeza de Negro gold-and-copper mine, in Ica April 10, 2012. Nine workers trapped inside a wildcat mine in southern Peru received oxygen and liquids through a giant hose on Saturday while a rescue team toiled to get them out, officials said. The men have been stuck about 656 feet (200 meters) below ground since the Cabeza de Negro gold-and-copper mine partially collapsed on Thursday. Small illegal mines are common in Peru, generating as much as $2 billion a year in income, according to private estimates. Peru's mining sector accounts for 60 percent of total exports.
