Terrible news indeed. Should not have happened full stop. But apparently this is the third mine disaster in the same area.

QUOTE
Pike River is not far from the Strongman Mine, where an underground explosion killed 19 men in January 1967.

New Zealand's worst mining disaster was a gas explosion in the same Pike River coal seam in 1896, which left 65 miners dead.

Words and actions offer such little comfort but are all we have to give. So very sad.

Simply awful news for our NZ friends.
Sadly is is starting to sound like Moura where they just could not even recover the lost men.

They are saying gas levels were so high with tests earlier today that there was little hope of them being alive before this second explosion. Gas levels were off the scales it has been reported. V1

I see the robot has failed.
Coal mine, gas, explosion,still lots of gas. I fear the worst.
The frustration must be horrendous.
