Entry Into An Abandoned Underground Mine

The safety precautions used and awareness of the potential dangers present led to successful conclusion of this entry, with the reemergence of the team from the mine. The allegation was disproved, measurement of the size of the underground cavity was made, and the team was able to directly observe advanced stages of collapse in this limestone mine.
