Huge, circular hole appears out of nowhere and worries residents – Metro World News Brazil

The unexpected appearance of a mysterious and gigantic hole has worried the residents of the Tierra Amarilla commune in the Atacama region of Chile.

To be on the safe side, the Chilean government has already sent experts to investigate the origin of a large 25-meter-diameter hole that appeared last weekend in an underground copper mine, the website Meganoticias reported.

Municipal Mayor Cristobal Zunica said that the location of the mysterious well near the residential area and the health center has caused great concern.

“As a municipality, we will take all measures to protect and inform our community about this worrying event,” he said.

“We are demanding answers from Chernegiomin and the competent authority to investigate why this happened and to see the risks of this happening in some other population sectors of Tierra Amarilla,” he added.

A team from Chile’s National Geological and Mining Service (Sernageomin) was sent to the site to “assess the situation and make recommendations”.

Additionally, the company immediately advised to close the accesses near the said hole to avoid any incident.

According to more information, the presidential representative of Atacama, Gerardo Tapia, said, “We immediately contacted the mayor to jointly coordinate the work to provide security and peace to the residents of Tierra Amarilla.”
