The caver Peter Ireson that the BBC link referred to, subsequently died due to this incident. He was a very experienced caver and member of the Grampian SG.

Having read through all the "near death" experiences ppl have been having with old coal mines, I feel like I "must have got away with one" because, before I properly understood the difference between the types of holes in the ground, I took a stroll in an old coal mine, and only came back to the surface when I dropped my hand torch. Oops
I do think that the geology must play a part in this, there was a strong flow of air out of the mine, and at no point did I struggle with breathing.

I am, pretty sure that, after reading about bad air, I will not be venturing back in again... but i'm happy to share the location with others

Geology: the study of rocks & similar substances (minerals n such) that make up the Earth''s surface. Minerals: are the building blocks of rocks. They are a naturally occuring,inorganic, solid, crystalline substance which has a fixed structure. (and some of them are really pretty)
