  • I might as well post some pics as well...

    All images have come from my Nokia 6230i. Only 1.3Mpixel, but they've come out pretty good.

    Several pics stitched together of an older pit here.


    A broken excavator - the mining dep't decided to just keep digging around it til it got fixed!!!


    Same excavator, to give you an idea of the size of the trucks.


    I was trying for a clever shot w/ sun and trucks, but that damn sun is just too bright!!!!


    Sunrise view over the main pit.


    Whoops, how did this get here?!?!?!

      No, here is the big hole. Taken on Jan 1st 2006, not with the Nokia but a real camera, and stitched together from 4 shots, I think.

            Hey Hornet, where abouts do you work at telfer?

            That last pic looks like it was taken in a white bus heading towards the A-Frame from the mills??

            I am currently running the floats there.

                  Reminds me of the time I stood on the edge of the pit at Mt Whaleback (Newman) looking down.

                  Holy crap.

                        Yah, I (and about 5 others) quit earlier in the year. Won't go into it, but suffice it to say that the mining dep't would preach the old "safety over production" line, but would do, um, something else.

                          Our catch cries here are "Safe Production" and "Zero Tolerance"... that must be why there were some explosives dude running down the ramp whilst being showered with rocks, 2 minutes after the blast, with a misfire, and the management team happened to be watching the blast, and turned a blind eye as the bloke was just missed by some rather large boulders that fell from a couple of RL's above... and nothing happened...

                              Nope... I think it's the new catch cry for 05-06... A lot of mining companies have or are adopting that paticular set of buzz words...
