Darren Flanagan – Inspirational Speaker

On an April night in 2006, Darren Flanagan was at home in Nowra when he received a phone call that would irrevocably change his life. An accomplished miner and explosives expert, Darren’s services were requested at the site of a collapsed Tasmanian gold mine. Flying immediately to the site, Darren prepared to help save the lives of two men who were trapped nearly 1km beneath the surface. This was an ordeal that would affect him deeper than he knew.

The name Darren Flanagan gained national recognition through his critical role in the Beaconsfield mine disaster. Darren was instrumental, heading far underground and operating more than 70 individual explosives over a period of 30 straight hours. Two weeks after the collapse, the rescue mission was successful (with Darren at the centre of it) and the grateful and exhausted miners walked free.
