Dragline Bench Failure

A blast from the past today. A major bench failure at Peak Downs. Does anyone know when this occurred?

Sunrise Dam Highwall Failure

Since tonight is the Masterchef finale, I thought I'd have a bit of cross-promotion. If you've watched the show this year, you'll know that the contestants went to the Sunrise Dam mine in WA for one of their challenges.

This major highwall failure comes from the same mine, and occurred earlier this year. These photos were sent in by a reader. Thanks!
