The Argus Friday 24 December 1875 Page 5

SANDHURST, Thursday.
A miner named John Moyle sustained
serious injuries to-day in the mine of the
Johnson's Reef Company. He was taken to
the hospital, where it was ascertained that
he was suffering from a compound com-
minuted fracture of the leg, a scalp wound, a
contusion of the back, and it is also thought
that his spine is injured. Moyle was an
underground boss. He is in a precarious

Bendigo Advertiser Monday 27 December 1875

On Thursday evening at half-past six o'clock
(i sad accident happened to a miner named John
Moyle, in the mine of the Johnson's Reef Com
pany, at California Gully. A heavy mass of
mulloch fell upon him, and inflicted injuries
from which he died in the hospital early on the
morning of the following day. The deceased
was the foreman of the afternoon shift, at work
in a winze below the 465 feet level. Two men
named Thomas Moyle and John Hodge had just
fired a blast at the stope, near the south end of
the winze; and the deceased being their boss re
turned with them to see the effect. Deceased
on examining the spot noticed some loose
ground which they could not work down with
the pick, and instructed the men to put in
another blast which would dislodge it. The men
named then went off for their boring tools,
when, on that instant, a mass of mulloch came
crushing down directly upon Moyle, and in
jured him fatally. The deceased's brother
and Hodge hearing the fall at once re
turned and found the deceased buried beneath
the mulloch. With great difficulty they ex
tricated him, and had him conveyed with all
speed to the hospital. The resident surgeon,
Dr Hinchcliff, found upon examination that he
had sustained a frightful wound on the scalp
about 2½ inches in extent; also a very severe
contusion of the back, with extensive ex
travasation of blood from the hips to the
shoulders; the parts being so swollen that
the condition of the spine could not definitely
be ascertained. The right leg was also
fractured just below the knee joint. Every
care and attention were paid to his case, but it
seemed hopeless from the first. He never
rallied; and at half-past four o'clock on Friday
morning he expired. The mulloch which came
away so unexpectedly and caused Moyle's death,
had probably been much loosened from the
shock of the blast which was fired only a short
time before: and there are further grounds for
believing that two black greasy scams meeting
in triangular shape over where deceased, was
standing, and which were disclosed only after
the block had fallen, were amongst the more
immediate causes of the accideut. This
mulloch formed the roof of the stopes
and it was about four feet in length
by three feet in height, and averaged 18
inches in thickness, the whole weighing about a
ton. The fact that this ground had been shaken
by the blast made it necessary that proper
soundings should he taken by the deceased
before exposing himself as he did, but he unfor
tunately neglected to take the precaution. No
blame, it appears, can be attached to any other
person in the mine. Mr. Moyle was an old
colonist, and had been many years on Bendigo.
He was held In high esteem by all who knew
him. His age was only 43 years. A widow and
nine children are left to bewail his untimely
