A massive sinkhole just discovered in Chile has authorities puzzled


It’s really profound.
A sinkhole that appeared in Chile over the weekend measured 656 feet from top to bottom, which is roughly 100 feet longer than the Washington Monument.
Authorities are trying to find out what caused the enormous sinkhole near Tierra Amarilla, a mining town.
The sinkhole is also pretty broad. The National Geology and Mining Service, better known as Sernageomin, first calculated the diameter to be roughly 82 feet wide when it was discovered on Saturday. But upon closer study, it became clear that the sinkhole was significantly larger. The organization stated on Tuesday that it is almost 105 feet wide. (At its base, the Washington Monument is only 55 feet wide.)

According to agency director David Montenegro in a statement to Reuters, “We haven’t found any substance down there, but we have seen the presence of a lot of water.”
Lundin Mining Corp. of Canada owns the area where the sinkhole appeared, which is close to the company’s Minera Ojos del Salado copper mining operations.
The sinkhole has remained stable since it was discovered, the business reported on Monday.

The adjoining mine is also being watched, and no movement related to the sinkhole has been detected. The business continued, “As a precaution, development activity in a section of the Alcaparrosa underground mine has been temporarily paused.”
Although experts are still trying to figure out what caused the sinkhole, several people on Twitter have offered their own theories.
