  2. Judge convicts mining company

    NEW ZEALAND: Judge Jane Farish has convicted a coalmining company of nine health and safety violations over a 2010 explosion that killed 29 miners.

    Judge Farish found today that Pike River Coal had failed to ensure the safety of its workers.

    An earlier investigation found the company ignored 21 warnings that methane gas had accumulated to explosive levels in the mine, and that it was exposing miners to unacceptable risks to meet financial targets.
