03/08/2005: "Mine Rescue"

The Sudbury Star ran a two part article this week about Mine Rescue. During Reading week in the spring Laurentian University mining engineering students have a opportunity to take a mine rescue course. It is similar to the one I took last fall be become part of Inco's Mine rescuers. I've tried to explain some of this stuff to people, but perhaps these articles will do a better job than I have.

Part 2: Going 'under oxygen'

I'm not sure how long the Sudbury Star keeps things on their website, but here's the links anyway.
