As Mexico was being jolted by a series of moderate-to-strong earthquakes today, Wyoming got into the earth-shaking act, too. The USGS recorded a magnitude 4.5 near Sleepy Hollow at 10:11 a.m. MT (12:11 p.m. ET). Turns out it was caused by mine blasting.
I woder too, just who is setting off these massive quake like explosions.?
The "Fake Quake of 2012" was "really an amplified echo of an unusually large mine blast," about 17 miles south of Gillette, the Casper Star-Tribune writes. A USGS geophysicist based in Golden, Colo., said the explosion actually registered as magnitude 3.0. Locals said they didn't feel a thing. "The only question now is: who set off an explosion that big at 10:12 a.m. somewhere in rural Campbell County?" the paper wonders.

How is this "PROOF" of a cover up?
It gets very tiring reading threads like yours on here claiming proof, but yet you offer not one ounce of proof, just an opinion based on..... What was it again, oh yea, nothing!
The 4.8 (later listed as 4.5 on USGS) is in NE Wyo. Wyoming is the 9th largest state. Where the quarry is located is a very long way from Yellowstone.
The 4.5-magnitude “quake” felt in Gillette Tuesday morning came from Cordero Rojo mine. The mine blasted soil and dirt at 11:11 a.m., when the U.S. Geological Survey recorded the earth-moving event 16 miles southeast of Gillette
GILLETTE, Wyo. -- An explosion in the area of some coal mines in northeast Wyoming was big enough to register on seismographs on the scale of a small earthquake.
Some people in Gillette reported feeling the ground shake from 16 miles away.
The tremor was likely caused by a large mine blast in the Powder River Basin, the U.S. Geological Survey says. This conclusion is supported by the fact the U.S. Geological Survey reports the epicenter of the temblor was located at the surface rather than underground.
