    In this Mine we are really lucky, because it seems to be our last, but we get it.
    But now from beginning:
    We fiend this really unknown Mine after a long research and Friends check a Way to get in.
    Sunday Evening i got the Call that we have a Way but we have to go NOW.
    I collect my Equipment i drive some Hours to thwe Mine.

    As me meet me and my Friends see that i forgott my Gaswarner at Home, and they also.
    What to do, a new Mine, we have driven hundrets of Kilometers,, but nor warner... Ok we go.

    On the entrance of the Mine it smells like old Eggs but the Air feel Ok.
    We start our Trip and walk and walk and walk in the Yellow-Brown Water. After around 10 Minutes we reech some interesting Point and we do some Pictures. We found a Dynamit Storage and here we also do Pictures.
    From one second to the other there was no good Air, we just scream run outside, run outside..

    And we really run and we came out an we nearly collapsed. We need 30 Minutes on the frech Air to regenerate us.

    We learn our Lesson, we have Warners, and we wont go without in the Future. And please you also dont go without. In Slate Mines its ok, but if you go in Iron Ore ore Sulfur Mines, please dont go without.

    Some Days after this a Friend of Mine go again in the Mine, with an Airtank from the Firefighters and a Gaswarner.
    On our Point where we return he see around 10% CO2. Keep it in your Mind, you have just one Live.


    To the Mine
    It was an Sulfur, Iron Ore and some other Minerals Mine. We see just a small Part of the Mine and just one Level.
    There must be 3 ore more Levels more.

    If you have Questions, fell free to ask. My Englisch isnt the best but i do all to try to understand ;-)

    There's obviously a massive amount of sulphur in that system. Which made me think of Hydrogen Sulphide - smelly and lethal. But that was not it.

    Carbon Dioxide at those levels usually requires organic decomposition. Which is evident in the pics. Carbon Dioxide displaces Oxygen, but those levels are ridiculous. You are very lucky to be alive.

    With the Hydrogen Sulfit you are right, thats also a really bad Gas.

    Co2 is horrible because you dont smell it.
    For this we have normally good Gas Warner.

    I have a big Multiwarn for
    O2 / co / co2 / ex
    and a seperate o2 and my Friends the same without co.
    And yes it was really stupidto do thos Trip without. I am not proud of this Trip and i told you and other Guys this that it dosnt happen again.
