Information:

A driller’s offsider received potentially serious facial injuries, when a sample hose on an R/C exploration drill rig ruptured under pressure. The driller was attempting to clear a blockage in the hose by attaching a blow back sub and applying high-pressure air into the sample hose. The sample hose failed near the cyclone. The offsider was walking past the cyclone when the hose suddenly ruptured blasting the offsider in the face with abrasive sample material.
