Buried Teleremote

From the submission: Teleremote loader kept on undercutting the rill until it got buried and then that massive rock to the right, which was a piece from the crown of the stope, which has failed, fell on to it.

Tire Failure

Sent in by  reader this week. I don't think I've ever seen a tire failure like it. From the email:

The picture shows a tyre failure on a chinese Triangle tyre mounted on a CAT740 at Leuwpan Coalmine in South Africa. The reason for the failure is poor tyre quality.

A Close Call

Some photos sent in by a reader this week. They come from a gold mine in Nevada, USA. The operator fell asleep at the wheel, fortunately, the rill did its job.
