Anniversary of the North Parkes Mine Disaster. On this day in 1999 a massive fall of ground  generated a catastrophic force of violently displaced air into  the underground workings at North Parkes Mine killing 4 workers instantly. Fortunately many others were physically unscathed. "When that 14 or 16 million tonne failed into that void where I was standing in the extraction level there was an enormous floor heave... It felt like the floor probably lifted about 1 foot.. dropped back down, and then the draw points that were near me an in the area where I was, basically were just instant dust... so couldn't see a thing - it was complete whiteout...   Wind velocities were estimated to be between 1000 and 1500 kph ... Vehicles where thrown around like being in a washing machine.
