Sika Trip Experience Mining: Adventure get started in Chile
The third day of Sika Trip Experience Mining Chile program took place in Saladillo Mine of Andina Division of Codelco, where four young students accompanied by Sika executives and mine personnel went all over the most important installations.
Thus, they were able to meet first-hand what copper exploitation, a much complex task that requires the best logistic work. This is a major challenge for these young students, who expect to contribute and work in this demanding industry in the future.
Have the chance to see directly, the magnitude of this process was something amazing, really hard to describe or even understand: the biggest hill in Santiago, called “Cerro Santa Lucia” could be erase in just one day of “normal” work of this mine…unbelievable.
We were inside of the biggest copper concentrator, below earth level, in the world. Period. And the feeling of see that was almost surreal. I was feeling and having an incredible experience, and I think that everyone around me were feeling the same.
The day was long, but group’s mood does not flag, as tomorrow Montserrat, Ana, Jorge and Oscar will go to Chuquicamat’s world, the largest open pit mine of the Chile and worldwide. A perfect panorama for these students.
