I was at Huber last weekend got a lot of picks. The demo guys were talking to me and showed me a hole that opened up when they were moving dirt around with the dozer.he rolled a tractor trailer tire in to the hole it took 10 seconds before it hit bottom anyone know about that shaft is it a vertical or air shaft thanks



Edit: I edited the title if this post for future reference, Chris

Where is this hole in relation to the breaker? There is an air shaft, the haulage shaft and a slope and a manway on the property.

Interesting, that sounds about where the haulage shaft is / was.

Have you seen this?:

The retail pockets with the blue coal sign is not there yet in that drawing but you can figure out where it is. The shaft is in the pic

.net format means you probably uploaded them to the internet? do you have them as .jpg's right off of your camera you can upload straight to the forum?
