Communication to Families
As many of you are already aware, there has been a terrible accident at the mine. On August 5th, the mine in San Jose collapsed with 33 mine employees inside. Many of these men are your loved ones and friends. Please be assured that we are doing everything we can to insure the quick and safe rescue of the men trapped inside. We have provided food and water to those who are trapped and constantly working to get these men out. We will not stop until all have been safely removed from the mine. We know that this will greatly affect everyone involved and their families as well. We have provided a disaster support line you may call to be helped with any concerns that may come up. These services will be offered for employees and their families at no cost to them. We know things are very difficult during this time, not only for those who are trapped, but for the families as well. We want to make sure everyone is taken care of and all needs are met. Due to the nature of this accident, we cannot offer an exact time line as to when we will recover from this incident. We are working with urgency to make sure everyone is safe and once that is accomplished we will work to improve the safety of the mine before anyone will be permitted to re-enter. Updates will be announced verbally followed by a letter to your home, as they arise. Thank you for your patience and support. We ask that only the immediate family go to the hospitals with the injured so the doctors and nurse can make sure everyone’s needs are met.
