Utter Destruction

The scale of the damage here just amazes me. This is from the Mosaic mine in Florida. The dragline would have to be a write-off. Click on the picture for a hi-res view.

Coal Hauler vs Light Vehicle

In the spirit of Mining Mayhem, I thought I'd start off this blog with some photos that show just how dangerous mining equipment can be, and how careful you have to be around it.

Fortunately there was no-one in the Landcruiser at the time of the accident. More photos below.

Edit 7/12/10 - Additional photos showing the extent of the damage on the cruiser.


Welcome to Mining Mayhem, a blog dedicated to new and classic mining accidents.

If you've got any photos of non-fatal mining accidents, send them through, and I'll put them up.
