Where did this exactly happen? And what is the name of the mine?

It has been "repaired"? I'm sorry but I just don't see that happening.

There is a report on this one on the web. The failure was a mount/clevis failure in the structure where the mast stay attaches near the winch room on the counter weight.

Crack at a badly designed joint. Not picked up during structural inspections. Fast failure.

Wow, it was really reconstructed. Amazing. There is a link on the Kolubara website.
