By Mark SissonThe Associated PressThe mining industry is once again on the rise.
A decade ago, Chile was reeling from the loss of its gold mining industry and a violent civil war.
In the late 1980s, Chileans were still reeling from a devastating earthquake that wiped out the nation’s capital and left millions homeless.
Chile is a country of about 11 million people, with an estimated 1 million mining jobs and more than 1,000 coal mines.
But the mining industry has recovered from those past hardships and is now flourishing.
The mining boom has been fueled by Chile’s abundant minerals, which have been used for hundreds of years by some of the country’s richest families.
Chiles minerals include gold, silver and copper, as well as a variety of minerals, such as sand and granite.
The copper mines have also been producing an estimated 300,000 tons of copper each year since 2008, according to the countrys ministry of economic affairs.
The countrys main mining companies are the Minera de América Chile, Minera Chile and Minera Minera, or Minemex, and the Rio Tinto mine, which employs about 4,000 workers.
The Rio Tins have been the subject of intense scrutiny for the past several years after they were found to be dumping hazardous waste into waterways and other landfills.
The company has said the waste was recycled in Chile.
There is also a thriving gold mining sector, with the Minerals Chile gold mining company and the Mineralia mining group producing gold in Chile, Argentina and Argentina.
Mining jobs are also plentiful in Chile’s south and central regions, as gold mining jobs have surged there over the past decade.
Chilo has the fourth-largest gold reserves in South America, behind Brazil and Chile.
The countrys gold mining has grown to an estimated $20 billion and is expected to reach $50 billion by 2030.
The new government recently signed a memorandum of understanding with the Rio Tin mine, and it is expected that mining jobs will also be part of the new mining strategy.
The miners say that mining is the future and that the mining boom is a key reason for the economic growth in Chile and the rest of Latin America.
“Chile’s mining boom will allow the country to move forward in developing a sustainable economic model for the future,” said Jorge Chirino, a mining industry veteran.
“There are some countries in the region that have failed to develop the mining sector due to a lack of investment and the lack of demand.
With Chile’s economic boom, we have the opportunity to be the first.”
