Relu Burlacu, station manager for University of Utah Seismograph Center, points on Aug. 7, 2007, to an early morning seismic event recorded Aug. 6, measuring 3.9, which could have been an earthquake or the mine collapse itself that recently happened in Huntington, Utah. Scientists believe the seismic waves in the area of the Crandall Canyon mine were "the signature of the collapse and that the collapse was not caused by an earthquake," said James W. Dewey, a seismologist at the National Earthquake Information Center. (AP Photo/The Salt Lake Tribune, Francisco Kjolseth) **DESERET NEWS OUT**
