Still GOLD in the hole

That is at the Martha Mine in Waihi,

One of the icon things in Waihi is the Martha Mine No 5 Shaft Pumphouse, this still stands next to the current opencast mine

All mines have big things so here are a few ..

Loading the ore onto the dump truck

Dump truck in the pit

Drilling for blasting

And this is what it all turns into a 20kg bar of bullion made up of gold and silver , was was nailed down so I could not run off with it (it was also not the real deal)

We went for a drive up that part of the world just to look at various camp sites at Omokoroa, Athenree, Bowentown and Waihi to see if any work was available but all of them do not need staff at the present, but come September or October then people will be required for the Christmas holiday time. So we need to think of what to do as seasonal work is not great at present..
