The miners work on the veins traced by former owners—veins which, as can well be imagined, are now very impoverished. Under these conditions, the workers receive a salary that barely covers the necessities of life. In spite of this hard reality, however, they keep going in the hope of discovering a rich vein, and the necessary credit with which to purchase the mechanical equipment to work it. The arches of the tunnels are so low that the miners must walk hunched over and sometimes crawl on their stomachs like reptiles. When miners are asked why the tunnels are not made higher they answer frankly: 'We cannot procure wood to secure the sides of the mine so we dare not open normal sized tunnels. Even so, we are under constant danger of being crushed or buried alive by an avalanche of rocks." <i>"La cooperativa minera que explota la mina llamada “Dos Carlos”, cuenta con muy escasos medios materiales para la expoltación de ésta.

En estas condiciones, los obreros cooperativistas de este mineral, solo logran un salario que dificilmente llena sus necesidades más apremientes. Pero a pesar de esta dura realidad, lo que allí les mantiene, son las esperanzasde encontrar una veta rica y el crédito necesario para adquirir el equipo mecánico indispensable para trabajarlo. Las bóvedas de los túneles son de tan escasa altura, que obligan al minero a caminar encorvado y a veces a rastras como un reptil. A la pregunta de porqué los túneles no son más altos, los mineros contestan claramente: “Como no podemos conseguir madera para ademar, pues las empresas mineras vecinas la acaparan toda, no podemos adventurarnos a ábrir túneles normales.
