The Mine Rescue



Mine Rescue Exhibition

The Mine Rescue exhibition tells the incredible story of the rescue of miners Todd Russell and Brant Webb. 
The exhibition recognises the rescuers and the innovation that took place in the effort to retrieve Todd Russell and Brant Webb from the 950 metre level depths of the mine.  Included in the exhibition are stories of how the community united in the crisis, how the town coped with the influx of media, and Beaconsfield’s recovery after such a significant event. 
A multisensory simulation of the rock fall allows visitors to experience the conditions of the underground tomb where the miners waited for two weeks to be rescued.
