Continued from the 3 Tour Thread.

Here is the North Portal,

And the South,

There is a third, but I'm not sure of the location.

Banks,

You were asking Brian about their escape pod.

But, he was complaining that I took the picture at the North Portal instead of the Portal he uses.

Pickey, Pickey, Pickey. This one is right on a county road and does not require any covert operations to photograph.

Is the escape pod by an airshaft or close to, just curious? That is the way I have seen most of our mines set up. It must save the mine the cost to transfer all the shaft sinking equipment. I have some cool pics somewhere sinking the escape pod shaft at Mathies Mine somewhere. Cool construction.

Brian BTW, finally another Bitty miner on here , welcome aboard.
