Berlin Firm to be Honored for Assisting in Rescue of Trapped Miners in Chile, says Metzgar

Center Rock Inc. of Berlin, Somerset County, has provided drilling equipment that is currently being used in the ongoing rescue of 33 trapped miners near Copiapo, Chile, and will be honored at a “Heroes Party” at 6 p.m. on Friday, Oct. 15, said Rep. Carl Walker Metzgar (R-Somerset) today. 

“The memory of the dramatic rescue at the Quecreek Mine is one that will never fade, so we all stand with the miners, families and officials in Chile,” said Metzgar. “I am proud that Center Rock is a part of that heroic rescue effort there, and I think this celebration is fitting for the company and our region.” 

The 33 Chilean miners have been trapped 2,300 feet below ground level for the past two months, and a near-continuous drilling operation was undertaken to rescue them. 

The party for the Center Rock firm and its owner, Brandon Fisher, will be held at Hillside Lodge near Berlin. The prime sponsor of the event is Jeff Hobbs, owner of the Mountaineer Sports Grille in Berlin. Many area residents and businesses have donated items and services for the occasion.
