On November 7th at 6:00 pm, the Western Museum of Mining and Industry in Monument is welcoming American drilling expert and team leader Jeff Hart for an exclusive lecture on his experience in rescuing the thirty-three trapped Chilean miners in 2010! The museum’s internationally unique Chilean Pod is a full scale replica (12.7 feet tall and weighing 1800 lbs) of the Fenix (or Phoenix) II capsule, and has become an iconic symbol of the dramatic 2010 rescue that saved the thirty-three Chilean miners who were trapped 2300 feet underground – as the world watched and worried. For more information, call 488-0880.
