Imagine what it would be like.
Right now there are two drills trying to reach the miners, Called Plan A and Plan B. The plan B drill already reached them, with a 12 inch hole. This needs to be widened to at least 28 inches to get the miners out.
Both these drills can drill about 30 to 40 meters a day. The miners are trapped at about 630 meters, over 2000 feet.
Now, they’ve started drilling with a drill used for oil well drilling, which surprisingly, they’ve named Plan C. This drill could drill 1000 meters a day, but the problem with this drill is accuracy, it’s a lot easier to hit a giant pocket of oil than it is to hit a 4 meter wide mine shaft. And the material in Chile is harder to drill though.
