Chilean miners visit Iti bauxite mines

The Chilean miners, who are currently visiting Greece, on Monday visited the underground tunnels at the Iti bauxite mines at Dio Vouna, in central Greece.
Greek and Chilean miners found themselves at a depth of three kilometres in the mines' underground tunnels for a close view of the production method, security measures and the mechanical equipment used by their Greek colleagues.

"We are enthusiastic with our days of stay in Greece," said a representative of theirs on coming out of the tunnels with his Greek colleagues," adding that "both the tools and the production means in the specific mines are very modern."

Thirty-three miners that were rescued after being trapped underground in a Chilean mine for more than two months last year, arrived with their families in Athens last Tuesday. The miners are visiting Greece at the invitation of the Greek Mining Company (ELMIN).
