Chilean Miners Reach Surface

Chilean President Sebastian Pinera opens his arms to hug rescued miner Mario Sepulveda early Wednesday, Oct. 13. Sepulveda and 32 other miners were trapped underground for 69 days in a gold and copper mine near Copiapo, Chile.

[This is fantastic news!  The world over has been watching and waiting for these miners to come to the surface. LOVE and JOY has just been heightened!

Another note:  What time did the first miner get to the surface?  11:11am.  How many of them?  33.  How many days?  69 – divisible by the powerful triad number 3.

Just to add a little to this, Doreen Virtue has an explanation on numbers which she describes as “Number Sequences From The Angels“:

111 – Monitor your thoughts carefully, and be sure to only think about what you want, not what you don’t want. This sequence is a sign that there is a gate of opportunity opening up, and your thoughts are manifesting into form at record speeds. The 111 is like the bright light of a flash bulb. It means the universe has just taken a snapshot of your thoughts and is manifesting them into form. Are you pleased with what thoughts the universe has captured? If not, correct your thoughts (ask your angels to help you with this if you have difficulty controlling or monitoring your thoughts).

333 (which I believe applies here due to the 33 and the 69) – The Ascended Masters are near you, desiring you to know that you have their help, love, and companionship. Call upon the Ascended Masters often, especially when you see the number 3 patterns around you. Some of the more famous Ascended Masters include: Jesus, Moses, Mary, Quan Yin, and Yogananda.

The capsule is also named Phoenix 1Phoenix – rising from the ashes to reborn again to live anew.

October 13, 2010

The painstaking but time-consuming process of bringing of 33 Chilean miners to the surface after 69 days underground began late Tuesday with the first being rescued at 11:11 p.m. ET.

Florencio Avalos, 31, stepped out of the metal rescue capsule moments later as the crowd cheered and horns blew. He was greeted by his wife, two sons and father. His son, Bairon, 7, sobbed.

Avalos hugged his rescuers and Chilean President Sebastian Pinera before being escorted into a medical triage centre set up on site.

Avalos was raised more than 600 metres through a rescue shaft while strapped into a 190-by-54-centimetre capsule. His journey began at 10:55 p.m. ET and took just 16 minutes.

Before his rescue, crews ran tests by lowering an empty capsule down the shaft and raising it before sending it back down with a rescue worker inside to help prepare the miners for their trip to the surface.

About 20 minutes after Avalos emerged, a second rescue worker was strapped into the capsule and it was lowered down the shaft again.

It returned to the surface with a second miner, Mario Sepulveda, at about 12:10 a.m. ET. A third miner, Juan Illanes, followed about an hour later.

The miners — who were trapped underground at the gold and copper mine near Copiapo, Chile, on Aug. 5 — are being hoisted to the surface one at a time through the shaft, which has taken weeks to drill.

The capsule, dubbed Phoenix 1, was taking a little more than 15 minutes to make each one-way trip. The winch that raises the capsule was expected to move at a speed of 0.7 metres per second, but the capsule can be pulled as fast as three metres per second if needed. Two additional capsules have been built to serve as backup if necessary.

Shortly before the rescue was due to start, the president teased reporters at a news conference that he was pretty sure the first one out would have the last name of Avalos. There are actually three men with that name trapped below.

But Maria Silva said the president himself had told her it would be her son Florencio.

Avalos, described by friends as shy, had been the group’s second-in-command before the collapse and often acted as a cameraman after cameras were sent down, taking pictures of the other miners — a role that frustrated relatives who saw little of him in the videos.

“I am not surprised” he was chosen, his mother Maria said after word reached the family. “I am so proud of him.”

Psychologists, Chile’s health minister and doctors at the site say it will be a perilous journey for the miners.

Doctors say the miners could suffer nausea and heart palpitations and are concerned about the risk of blood clotting and heart attacks. Aspirin had been sent down to the men to thin their blood.

Miners monitored during ascent

The miners are closely monitored from the moment they are strapped in the capsule. They had been given a high-calorie liquid diet donated by NASA, designed to keep them from vomiting as the capsule rotates.

A video camera in the capsule is used to monitor for panic attacks. The miner uses an oxygen mask and has two-way voice communication.

They also wear sweaters because of the shift in climate from about 30 C underground to near freezing on the surface after nightfall. Those coming out during daylight hours will wear sunglasses.

After medical checks and visits with family members selected by the miners, the men will be flown to hospital in Copiapo, a 10-minute ride away. Two floors were prepared where the miners will receive physical and psychological exams and be kept under observation in a ward as dark as a movie theatre.

The last miner who will leave the mine has already been decided — shift foreman Luis Urzua, whose leadership was credited for helping the men endure 17 days with no outside contact after the collapse. The men made 48 hours worth of rations last before rescuers reached them with a narrow borehole to send down more food.
