Chilean Miners Trapped for Months

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 copper and gold mine, where they are sheltering in a 50 sq m side-chamber off one of the main passages.
