Rock fall shuts part of Cadia East underground mine

Health, Safety Environment and Social Responsibility manager Nedra Burns said yesterday a seismic event at the Cadia East gold mine caused localised damage to a small area of the development level of panel cave two. "Mining-induced seismic activity is an expected part of the block caving method used at Cadia and the Cadia East mine is designed to withstand the continual breaking and movement of rock above it," Ms Burns said.

McConnell under the microscope

It looked like the cave train was rolling at full speed last night , even through there were already some Republicans kicking and screaming. Mitch McConnell was inexplicably moving toward stripping the executive amnesty provisions out of the DHS funding package and offering up a "clean bill" to Harry Reid.

For weeks, Democrats in Washington have warned that any short-term funding measure to keep the Homeland Security Department open would be irresponsible-and even dangerous.

DeLorme inReach Explorer Satellite Messenger

Has anyone used one of these or know very much about them? I'm a little confused between DeLorme's service and Iridium service and how much you need of either/both to do which functions.

Re: Basic Vertical Instruction

The Tampa Bay Area Grotto (email swad99ATgmailDOTcom) and the Karst Research Group (a student group at the University of South Florida; email jmsampsoATmailDOTusfDOTedu), have vertical workshops from time to time. Get in touch with either group.

The Florida Cave Cavort is also coming up this weekend. You might be able to coerce someone into showing you a few things there. http://www.cavort.rivercitygrotto.com/index.html
