     A huge hole in the desert has formed in Chile: the reasons for its appearance are not yet known (photo)

    A huge hole in the ground is about 32 meters in diameter and goes about 60 meters deep.

    In the Atacama Desert in Chile, not far from the mine where copper is mined, a huge hole has formed, which is larger in size than a tennis court. Experts are trying to find out the reason for its appearance and whether the collapse is related to the activities of the copper mining company, ScienceAlert reports.

    A huge hole in the ground, estimated to have a diameter of about 32 meters, extending to a depth of about 60 meters, appeared near the city of Tierra Amarilla, which is located about 800 km from the capital of Chile, Santiago, in the north of the country.

    Near the city is a copper mine called Alcaparrosa. This mine is owned by the Canadian company Lundin Mining. It is worth noting that Chile produces the most copper in the world and this country provides 25% of the world market for this metal.

    Specialists from the National Service of Geology and Mining of Chile have already begun a thorough study of the hole to find out the reason for its appearance.

    A statement from Lundin Mining says that immediately after the hole appeared, around the collapse was equipped 100 meter security perimeter. The company also said that no one was injured as a result of the collapse, and also that no damage was caused to either the infrastructure of the mine or other nearby infrastructure.

    Since the appearance of the hole, and this happened a few days ago, no more collapses of the soil have occurred, and the hole has remained in its original form. But for safety reasons, all work at the copper mine was suspended until the reasons for the appearance of a huge hole in the Chilean desert were clarified.

    The head of the National Service of Geology and Mining of Chile, David Montenegro, said that the cause of the collapse would be established, but for now, accepted all security measures so that neither the workers of the mine nor the residents of the nearby city are injured.

    At the same time, the mayor of the city of Tierra Amarilla, which has a population of approximately 13 thousand people, Christian Zuniga, told reporters that this was an unprecedented event. And he demands from the authorities to find out whether the sinkhole is the result of the activities of the mining company or whether it appeared due to other, possibly natural factors.

    As Focus already wrote, scientists have discovered near Panama, a country in Central America, a secret passage in the bowels of the Earth. It is located at a depth of about 100 km from the surface.
