Die Steinbeisser

The Miners

(Die Steinbeisser)

600 meters deep into the mountain, one can witness the extremely dangerous job of "the Miners". We were there with them, in the rainy, hot, and loud-as-hell shaft. Under the leadership of their South African experts, they drill, blast and reinforce a vertical path into the mountain. Their colleagues operating the tunnel drilling machine win new world records over and over again.
