Danville is East of San Francisco maybe 20 or so miles as the crow fly's..

Yes they were all close together. Was it last year TL when you got a bunch of them?

Hard to call but we get about 2 dozen at week up here 13 miles away but at times it just shuts down.

The one I worry about is when Cascadia lets go. hasn't done anything since Jan 26th 1700.

I can't honestly remember if it was a year ago, or two years ago... Those were centered along Alcosta Blvd. in San Ramon, and did travel through towards my house... These new quakes are North of me, and are in Danville and Diablo...


TL


The also are trending NE by SW. That is 90 degrees to the known faults. Looks like something new.

Are there any old underground mines in that area?

Cheers.

who knows what the Gov. is up to Wiggo, I think most mining is done farther east of us near Nevada .

But Mnt. Diablo , I spent a night up there in the 90's for the biggest star shower of my life, froze my butt off but it was worth it.

I wasn't thinking anything about governments Grant, but over here the shakes that we do get are mostly caused by old mine workings collapsing in on themselves.

Cheers.

Well I hope most of those days are over Wiggo even gold mines now are doing open stripping these days.
I know of one copper mind that gets a lot of gold and copper both out of the same hole.

You may be on to something. I found that there was a gold, silver, and copper mine in the area in 1865. Not exactly where the quakes were, but there could have been other less documented mines.

7.5 Quake rattles Papua New Guinea

A magnitude-7.5 earthquake struck the Pacific country of Papua New Guinea, the US Geological survey says.
The quake hit early on Monday morning in a central region of the country's main island of New Guinea at a depth of 35 kilometres.
About a half an hour later a second earthquake with a magnitude of 5.5 in the same area with a depth of 39 kilometres.
There were no immediate reports of damage.

Gold here sure but copper I'm not sure about. Copper and gold in Arizona and New Mexico.
if the one that I was at ever craps out in Arizona has a place to dump garbage for 200+ years maybe even longer. Or one hell of a swimming pool. LOL
