A huge rock failure is to blame for this incident. Currently it is estimated that over thirty workers are trapped in the mine at a depth of nearly 300 meters. Rescue operations are still in progress, boreholes have been drilled to locate the miners, however, no exact location has been established at this time. Rescue operations will take some time, however family members are encouraged to be patient. There will be updates as developments take place.
Knowing Your Audience Jesse Ruffin BCOM/275 January 22, 2015 Professor Dean Knowing Your Audience Good communication begins with being aware of who's your intended audience. In many occasions, the sender engages into unnecessary miscommunication situations for, not taking the time to know their intended audience. In the incident such as the Chilean Copper Mine Collapse, it's important to keep in mind that the audience is a combination of roles. You have the interested party (the company) and the disinterested party (the publication or source reporting the collapse). In an article, the written words express the thoughts and feeling of both the company and the families.
I would make sure to let the readers know that every precaution is being taken for the safety of the miners. I would have to assure the public that all hands are working to save the lives of these people. I would want to convey that this was an unavoidale accident and that changes will be made to ensure the safety of future workers in the mines. I would make this a top priority situation. I would get as much media involved as possible.
Unit 4222-324 - Support individuals with specific communication needs (HSC 3029) Outcome 1 - understand specific communication needs and factors affecting them. 1.

I would also suggest redundant servers. * The rotation should be done every day due to the constant change of user profiles and the fact that new material is always being added to keep games up to date. Full backups should be done weekly with differential backups done daily. The full backup should be done at the start of every week at the lowest peak of online use and the next 6 days done with differential. * Seeing how this data is the life blood of the company it should be taken offsite daily.
Chilean Copper Mine Collapse BCOM 275 August 10, 14 Chilean Copper Mine Collapse In San Jose, news spread rapidly of a Chilean copper mine that collapsed with a group of miners inside. The media got wind of the story and distributed it amongst the masses without ensuring that family members and co-workers were notified first. The mine contained 33 miners that were trapped within the same room for a number of days. The space was approximately 50 square meters wide and they were trapped for approximately 69 days. The Refuge was the place the miners were supposed to go in case of an emergency.
There are 33 miners trapped below the surface. The rescue teams have been put in place at the site along with emergency medical personnel and government authorities. The families are receiving notification and will be setting up a camping area near the site. The management team is asking for employee cooperation in the rescue efforts. Please adhere to the following directives in regard to this mining disaster.
Scanlan also made sure there was notification of his findings posted throughout the mine in order for all to be informed of the danger of the mine. Scanlan was sure to report all of his findings to the Department of Mining and Minerals. The decision to not shut down the mine in order to demand the safety measures be remedied has proven to be a hard lesson learned. This is mainly because it will always be questioned “what if” these measures were done, would the lives of 111 coal miners be saved. Scanlan as public administrator may have used the media and public radio stations to inform the public of the possibility of the explosion and this may have forced the owners and authorities to take action sooner than they decided to take action.

Let me inform you that the mines can be very dangerous and before we start the rescue we want to ensure that they are out of harm’s way. Once we have this information we can begin with the rescue.
