SAN JOSE MINE, Chile (AP) - Chile's Mining Minister says the first trapped miner is expected to be lifted to the surface late Tuesday after more than two months below ground.

He did not say when President Sebastian Piniera would be arriving.

The 33 miners have been trapped nearly half mile underground at the copper and gold mine since Aug. 5.
