Visited with pauln and Si o'doom with a brief appearance from jonboy and spadge!

Seeing a report on this place a few weeks ago gave an indication of how big this place is. But pictures really do not do this place justice. It is a mine on an epic scale. In some places the ceilings seem to be at least 100 feet high if not higher and the tunnels stretch for what seem like miles on at least 4 or 5 levels. Huge blast curtains line the walls where the last lot of blasting took place and they give the place a bit of a theatrical feel. Its also easy to get disorientated down there as we found out to our cost at one stage. We spent hours down here and only saw a fraction of what the mine has to offer so heres a few pics from the day to whet your appetite. Apologies for having people in all the pics but they're there for a purpose as it gives the best indication of how big the place is.
