*CG locator Huntington, UT

Above the mine, two drills are
now boring through a thousand feet of
solid rock.

The owner of the mine says it
will take at least two more days to
reach the trapped miners.

If the miners are alive---


rescuers can use the 2 and a half inch
wide hole to send down food and water.


Mine officials do caution even a
small error in calculations could
result in the drill missing the cavity
where the six men are believed to be.

When a mine is unstable- these
miners are the ones to go back down.

And they're all here to learn
more through healthy competition.

Each of these teams could be
called on to enter a collapsed or
dangerous mine to search for survivors.

All of them are volunteers, and
they are required to go through two of
these competitions each year.
