“So while everyone thought they were gathering concrete evidence, they were, in fact, covering the evidence in concrete.”
An engineer investigating the Pike River mine disaster has claimed a mine manager pumped tonnes of concrete into a vital air feed, likely where the miners gathered after the first explosion, “completely obliterating” evidence.
Thursday marked the 10th anniversary of the 2010 coal mining accident on the West Coast which claimed the lives of 29 men.

Electrical engineer Richard Healey, who spent two years helping the families investigate, appeared on Newshub Nation on Saturday claiming 350 cubic tonnes of concrete was poured into the mine.
“We have the invoices for the material, 105 tonnes shipped from Australia in seven shipping containers. We have eyewitness testimony from people who put material down the shaft, the process took three days. We know that the contract which was signed to do that specified that 350 cubic metres of material would be used.”
