Deep Down Dark is a narrative nonfiction book by journalist and novelist Héctor Tobar. The book tells the story of 33 miners trapped in a caved-in mine in Northern Chile starting on August 5, 2010. They stayed underground for 69 days. The miners' personal stories of their months trapped in the mine are complemented by tales of what the miners' families and the public experienced on the surface during the ordeal as well as by an in-depth recounting of the successful rescue effort.

The San José copper mine in Northern Chile was over 100 years old, and the miners working there were aware that it was not in optimal condition. The men complained about the conditions to their general manager, Carlos Pinilla, but he was not responsive. Still, they needed money, and mining jobs were relatively lucrative.
