Key Sources of Information on the Pike River Mining Disaster

The following are some links to key sources of information on the Pike River mining disaster. I'll be building this up over the next few days. 

The first and most important place to start is the Royal Commission report:

And for the full report including Volume 2:

Bryce Edwards provides a useful set of links to material in his NZ Politics Daily, November 6th, 2012. This is reproduced in the NBR:
