A series of explosions one after the other rocked the underground mine near Greymouth on the west coast of the South Island in November, killing 29 miners and contractors  and hampering any further rescue  while the miners were already presumably not alive.

The union  has said that  they expect as many as 90 per cent of the mine's 160 workers could possibly be made redundant this week.
