MSHA on Sago-"Mine blast may have been in sealed-off area"
Rescuers sent into a West Virginia mine after last week's fatal explosion found indications that the explosion might have occurred in a part of the mine that was shut down, a member of the U.S. Mine Safety and Health Administration said on Wednesday.
"I defer to the investigation team to make sure they see the same things our people did," Ray McKinney, the administrator for coal mine safety and health for the agency, told reporters.
McKinney said it was a "logical assessment" that the explosion happened in the shut-off area. (LINK)
It is about time they made this known. As I said yesterday, Hatfield made a good point. I dont believe the rescue team would falsely report where and how the explosion area looked.
