There are several key reasons for mining accidents, some structural or geology related reasons, some caused by human error....explosions to to improper venting of combustible or noxious gases that collect in mines.
When I have more time, I'll try to explain some of it better.
Thanks, Man! I have a close friend from junior high and high school that I keep in touch with that's currently in his last semester of university for a degree in Green Engineering. He's a huge proponent. He was an engineer on a nuclear submarine a decade or so and has always been a proponent of that as well.
I plan to see him during the Christmas holiday and I'm anxious to pick his brain. I find Green Energy to be a very interesting topic.
