Subject: 1884-6 Bomb Blast

In 1884-6, a mine blast on the Rand resulted in my G Grandmom being
compensated for the resultant facial injury from a shattered kitchen
window. Does anyone have any knowledge of the blast? Apparently the
compensation paid was reasonably generous - in gold coins, naturally!
