    RICHMOND, BC, Aug. 10 /CNW/ - CON-SPACE Communications Ltd.
("CON-SPACE"), (TSX-V: CCB), (, announced that their Rescue
Probe is being used in the search for the six coal miners trapped in a Mine
located near Huntington in Utah.
    "When we heard about the collapse that trapped the six miners on Monday,"
said Terry Ibbetson, CEO "we contacted our local representative, John
Pennington of DXP Enterprises who was already at the mine site and arranged
for Rescue Probes to be shipped immediately in preparation for use when holes
being drilled broke into the chamber located almost 1900 ft underground."
    The Rescue Probe is similar to one used to successfully determine that
the nine miners trapped in the Quecreek Mine accident in Pennsylvania in 2002
were all alive and provide communication for their speedy evacuation. "The
people at CON-SPACE are hoping for a similar outcome in Utah," said Ibbetson.
