The Mining Conflict
Excitement in the Chilean desert. Valuable mineral resources have been found in this 1,200 km long desert along the Pacific Ocean coast: Gold, silver and copper. Several companies are already busy prospecting by erecting huge drilling rigs since the seams are deep under the surface. Due to security reasons the drilling rigs cannot be installed too close to each other, which is why each new rig limits the possibilities to erect new ones in the surrounding.
Moreover, the mining rights have been limited by the government. Only for two of the three commodities the companies received a concession. Extracting the “wrong” type of resource will result in penalties.
