Beaconsfield Mine Collapse, Tasmania, 2006

On 25 April 2006, a small earthquake triggered an underground rock fall at the Becaonsfield gold mine in northern Tasmania. Miner, Larry Knight, was killed in the rock fall, while two other miners, Brant Webb and Todd Russell, remained trapped. Rescuers began to blast a series of tunnels to reach the men but did not discover that Webb and Russell were still alive until 30 April.

On 1 May, rescuers drilled a hole to the men, using it to deliver fresh water, food, communications equipment, medical supplies, an i-pod, messages from loved ones and other items. Webb and Russell remained trapped in the mine until 9 May, 14 days after the mine collapse. Six hours after his rescue, Russell attended the funeral of his colleague, Larry Knight.
