Artisanal and dangerous mine

The accident occurred on Wednesday around 1:30 p.m., when the minors found by digging a area full of water whose collapse caused the flood.

This is a very dangerous craft mine for minors, according to experts.

"The minors dig a two meter diameter well, and continue to dig until they find coal," said a metallurgical engineer, Guillermo Iglesias, on a local radio.

This type of infrastructure does not protect workers from collapses, unlike the protections that exist in an industrial mine, he added.

We still do not know the name of the company for which work the ten minors.

The State of Coahuila, which produces 99% of Mexican coal, is used to mining tragedies. In June 2021, seven workers died after an underground collapse in the Múzquiz region.

An accident remained engraved in the Memoirs: 65 minors died on February 19, 2006 during the explosion of a gas pocket in the Pasta de Conchos mine, controlled by the Grupo México conglomerate.

Sixteen years later, 63 of the 65 bodies still lie at the bottom of the mine.

It has been 16 years since families "require measures" against accidents "and their calls have not been heard," deplored Jesus's company, who affirms that the Jesuits accompany loved ones in their request for justice before the international bodies.
