Pike River - Conclusion

This week's Listener has a really good wash-up of the mine disaster. OK, so that is my confirmation bias talking I will admit. It comprises a sseries of articles including -

Bill Munden, ex Strongman miner and one of the first down after that explosion. He describes conditions which pretty much support my thoughts.

David Faikert, "mine safety expert", who supports my contention that any survivors of the initial blast would have succumed to CO "soon after".

My "gas outburst" idea is thought likely.

And so the list goes on.
