Ouray Revenue Mine Accident

Postby jchapell » Sun Nov 17, 2013 9:44 pm

Horrible news - 2 Killed and 20 injured at the Revenue Mine outside Ouray, on the road to Yankee Boy Basin. Having been out there recently and talking to the locals about the reopening of the Revenue Mine, this is tragic for the entire community around Ouray. May want to avoid YBB for a bit.

Very sad. Despite getting MSHA underground certified, I hope to never have to go underground again.

I'm grateful for the rescue workers' sake that it was CO and not unstable ground.

It is a sad day for Ouray, for Colorado, and for the mining community.
I don't care that you Tele.
