"Lost Mines" - all is forgiven, even EWF.

Just check this out


I have just come to the rather fatalist conclusion I am wasting my time. These idiots deserve the "Golden Coffin" award. They beat everyone else hands down.
Its Watersaw Mine in Derbyshire, its even a rather sensitive site.
Thinking about it, when everywhere is sealed up the videos will be all we have left.

Oh dear - no, can't offer a defense for this one...... :thumbsdown:

Like I say, we may as well just give up these videos. I thought that I could somehow do something, I now see that I cant.
Its all out of control and nothing we can do about it.

The guy with the flowery bag appears to be the slightly more intelligent member of a rather dim crew, as he suggests leaving - the only smart comment in the entire shitshow. I actually want these guys to get stuck. Rescue would be better than death, as then we could get to watch the entire video of them begging for mercy in pools of their own piss. At least.

You could always make your own YouTube channel Roy, after all, if you can't beat 'em, might as well join 'em  :lol:

If anyone decides to imitate you (either underground or experimenting with recreating the sun), consider it a fast-track natural selection process   :thumbsup:

I was going to say there is not a single helmet in sight, Oh wait yeah there is there's four of them in that mine with no head protection  ;D  ;D

But seriously, I've never been there, any chance of a little info on what kind of mine it is and why it's a sensitive site please?  :thumbsup:

The waters have cleared somewhat now regarding the legal and other positions regarding the original thread subject. As such I perceive a better way of handling the situation, I dont always get things right first time, although i always act in what I feel is the best interests of the mine exploration and mining history community.

As such, I now feel that this thread in its present form may be adding to the problem, and as such I would like to prune it back to remove all references to the subject of my first posting. I will leave in the Watersaw crowd obviously and the thread can continue to discuss these issues.

If anyone who has added to this thread objects please say so, but I want to get this done later today or tomorrow.

Thread suitably pruned
There are some good points made which I have left as much as is possible. If anyone feels their post is now out of context and would like it removing or editing, please just ask.

No problem - these guys are way more suitable for a discussion, and the thread title is much more relevant now :)

To my mind, the most stupid thing among a catalogue of stupidity is that they showed the location AND exactly how they got in, double stupidity
That means the route will get sealed up for others.

More to the point, there doesn't seem to be much there stopping them getting in. From the video it appears it won't be too long before it does that to itself. It's not on my bucket list :)

The main decline or roadway winds downwards for about a hundred metres or so, All branches off are collapsed. There was a new heading started by the last operating company, but this was abandoned. By the look of things I would say that its unlikely to get started up again. If it gets sealed with concrete or whatever, its no big loss to explorers as there is nothing really in there. Some nice examples of ring arching, but that's about it.
Its just a matter of time before it all comes down.

The Google Earth Historical Imagery for 2005 and then 2010 is also instructive - and the subsequent ones after the backfilling. Looking at the present-day though, it looks like it's happening again on the west end.
