Along with friends and colleagues from San Pedro, we waited with anticipation, to our trip on the “Land Train”, up the Sierra Minera, to be one of the first groups, to visit the Agrupa Vicenta Pyrite Mine. We were booked on the 10.45 Hrs., journey up “Road 33” to the mine.

The 10.15 “Train” was filling up nicely. Profesor Jose’ Manteca, from the Department de Ingenieria Minera, Geolo’gica y Cartografica, Universidad Polite’cnica De Cartagena, who is a member of the team that has put this Mining Park of La Union, on “The Map”, along with the work on opening the Agrupa Vicenta Mine to the public, greeted your reporter, as he climbed into the carriage, that was to take him, and his fellow travellers, to the mine entrance, wishing us all a visit to remember. Yes Profesor, but as it turned out, perhaps for the wrong reasons! It was 15 minutes later, that we had a feeling that all was not as it should be. The “Land Train” arrived back to the carpark, with the driver looking a little shaken and concerned. It would seem that break warning lights had indicated a problem! Not good on a 1 in 6 incline! Bonnet, or should we say, boiler and smoke box up, and after much shaking of heads and shoulder shrugging, it was decided that the “Train” was going nowhere, apart from the repair shop! “Never happened before” he stated. “No problem” said Ana, our guide, “We have sent for a Mini Coach, won’t be too long”. Just under an hour later, we at last took our seats in the Mini Coach, and made our way up to Agrupa Vicenta, passing passengers from the first train of the day, making their way down Road 33, on foot. I caught a glimpse of the “Good Profesor”, in the back seat of a private car, making it’s way back down the dusty track, no cheery wave this time! We, at last, arrived at the entrance to Mina Agrupa Vicenta. Nothing could wrong now. Don’t you belive it! “Smoke Ana, can’t get rid of it!”. The problem now it seemed, was the high-tech smoke generator, installed to give the visitor, a view of what happend after gunpowder is exploded deep underground. The duty engineer for the day, explained that the “Controlled” smoke injection, and gone out of • Unlimited free transfers • Completely legal & insured • Immediate transfer to Airport, NO WAITING, dropping you right outside departures for your convenience.

control, and the mine had taken on the look of a London pea-souper! “Can’t explain it” said the engineer, “Never happened before”. “We can go in”, said Ana, “But keep close to me, and I’m sorry, but we can’t visit the lake level, too dangerous”. We made our way down the adit, to view the workings, but it was difficult to appreciate, in the fog and gloom, all the hard work, which I know, from a visit I made some months ago, has been undertaken, to open this mine to visitors to La Union. I remained behind as our group made their way back to the entrance and sunlight, to take a couple of photographs. Film exposed, I headed back through the fog, towards the adit entrance, when I felt a hard push, in the small of my back, just as if a hand had been thrust out, to urge me on. I turned to tell my fellow visitor, that I was going as fast as I could, in such conditions, but there was no one there, I was alone! Now you tell me!!!! Finally, returning to the car park, Ana offered all visitors their money back, which was good of her. As I made my way back to my car, my companion asked if I was o.k., as I looked as if I had seen a ghost! “No, but have just felt one” I replied. “It’s ain’t meant to be, it’s an omen, that’s what it is”
