SAN JOSE MINE, Chile
Plan B mine, the quickest drill option is at 519 meters. They need 630 meters to break ground. Officials still won't give a firm date or much of an estimate.
The big decision now is to case or not to case the interior of the rescue hole. Officials are discussing that over the next few days. They say their preference is to case. Casing 100 meters can take approximately 10 hours. Some engineers seem to think the rescue hole is sturdy enough without the use of a casing.
Family members cheered as a fleet of trucks rolled through Camp Esperanza carrying equipment for a faster capsule that could raise the miners quicker than the 15 minute current estimate.
16 members of the rescue team were presented to the media. All of whom officials say are trained in for subterranean rescue and have psychological training.
Officials said its premature to talk about Saturday rescue.
