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.

Democrats Say a Short-Term DHS Bill Would Be Terrible. They May Vote for It Anyway.

If Republicans bring up a short-term Homeland Security Department funding bill, House Democratic leaders will have a strategic decision to make. 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.

Climbers rescued from Sligo cliff

A number of people were rescued on Saturday after getting into difficulty when climbing the Gleniff Horseshoe in Co Sligo. The climbers, from caving clubs at UCD and DCU, were exploring Diarmuid and Grainne's Cave, the area around a large cave high on the cliffs above Gleniff.

I knew someone with an ACR PLB (personal locator beacon) and he recommended over the SPOT, too. Then I saw this thing. It let you post to FB while out in the boonies. Not so much that I feel the need to be connected, but I like the idea of sending txts or FB to my family in case I need help that falls short of an all out SAR callout. But I don't want to pay a ton of money or need a lot study to follow the instructions.

Auction #113: Speleo Digests 1970-1979

Here is a rare opportunity to get TEN consecutive issues of the Speleo Digest. Only 1978 is still "In Print". The other nine issues are "Out of Print". The NSS sells the 1978 issue for $10, so I will start this auction at $100. I'm pricing the "Out of Print" issues at the same price as the one that is still "In Print". All issues are in NEW condition, except 1970, which is slightly used.

These are heavy, so shipping will be $1 each for a total of $10 extra. No International Shipments. This auction starts today, February 27 and ends in two weeks on Friday March 13 at 8:00 CST. Good luck!

Re: Hiking Boot Reccommendations

I bet the Merrells are a good choice although I've never owned a pair. I was just going to suggest boots that are relatively light weight, especiallyif you plan to hike a long way in or out of the caves. Heavy boots can drain your energy.
