We set a record for our mine complex for the month of March. 511,287 clean tons with only 1 lost time injury. And that was in the top shop........ :shock:

We holed into our new material/air shaft today. We had more bosses around there than you could shake a stick at. Well when we finally made a hole,they all scattered. :D :D They guesstimated @5000 gallons of water :shock: The miner operator came out looking like a frowned rat. The pinners were next door,doing their thing when they decided to head for higher ground.fortunately the pumpers were there at the ready and all was ok.

Congrats on the record. Did you ever make your black hat? That's good for a sorry A$$ miner man to get wet they don't do much anyway. Got to take care of the Bolt Crew though, OH, and also your Electricians. :D

I will get rid of my cherry at the end of August,and it can't get here soon enough. As far as taking care of my pinners, I have to, one of them is "Cuz". Kind of a running joke( he is black,I am white. You wouldn't believe how often we get asked). As far as the electrician goes,gotta take care of him,he keeps me supplied in tape!!!!!!!
