Underground Rollover

I don't have many underground photos in my collection. Fortunately, a reader sent this one through this week.

Two Years Old

Mining Mayhem is now two years old! I'd like to give a big 'thank you' to the regular readers of this blog, and to those who've sent through many photos, and to those you've linked to Mining Mayhem from other sites.

In Mining Mayhem tradition, I've decided to mark the anniversary with a video. Last year's video was of some fancy loader driving. This year's is of some fancy excavator driving.

And you thought your risk assessments took a long time!

Edit 26/5/12: Here's some photos of the excavator at another demonstration.
