    I wouldn't go down a mine. With Chile and China, it's down to Health and Safety shortcomings. Bit surprised at new Zealand though. Though TBF explosions can happen anywhere.

    That's why you never heard of explosions in the uk since mines & quarries act got tough, things like dust suppression & suppression equipment was always in place when required & methane gas was correctly monitored. my mining years were a good time with a good pay & right laugh.

    Yes! Ed, kersley was the next one just a few short miles away but shut a number of years ago. ('the mill' used to cut upto 16' ''yes foot'' coal seam).
