Unbelieveable that many down in the mine. Will any make it out?

It’s not due to a collapse, it’s just that the “elevator” is broken and they have to reconfigure another “elevator” to allow them to exit safely. Nobody’s beem hurt, they just can’t get out.

A friend of mine got a chance to go into one of the BIG - I mean REALLY BIG silver mines in Nevada. Maybe one having to do with the Comstock lode or something.

He said it was jaw dropping... dozens of levels, huge shafts that had been put in just for airflow, running streams underground and running hot water and sinks, bunks because some guys would just stay down there.

Pretty impressive. A guy could live down there for a long time.
