Could an underground mine collapse?

The ore is extracted using drilling and blasting with explosives. Therefore there is always the risk of mine collapse, even if the probability is low. In the interest of getting miners out of the mine as quickly as possible, the usual safety procedures in place to prevent radioactive contamination may be overlooked. Major earthquakes could also cause the mine to collapse.
