This is one gigantic horrible mess!

I pray now for the families and friends of those who have died - that resolution and comfort come out of this, during these early days.

Christmas will never have the same meaning again!!!

One poor victim was only 17 - on his first shift - in his first mine!

It is terribly sad.

The last few, where miners have been rescued, are the absolute exception to the rule. This is the awful reality.

Mining, and tunneling are incredibly dangerous occupations, done by very brave men & women.

Spare a thought for EVERY miner, not just these 29 poor souls. Every day is a day their families could lose a father, mother, daughter, or son.

Rest well brave men, your toil here is done.

Too true Dale: the recent Chilean and Chinese entombed miners were sourcing nickel and gold.

This one by comparison, re: coal seams, is riddled with methane/ethane gas.

The sombre mood around Greymouth atm must be 'deafening'.

...stopped over for 1 night there in '93
