Hey guys,
I'm working on making a documentary called Portal to the Past. In this film we uncover the early history of mining in New England by exploring an untouched abandoned copper mine mentioned in some early 18th century documents. The find yields interesting minerals and artifacts that help us better understand primitive mining techniques.
The film is still a work in progress but I'll be posting some clips and you guys can tell me what you think. Any criticisms or suggestions you can offer would be highly appreciated!
-Mike

Here is a teaser video

Yea Marc started off swinging strong but ran out of steam by the end of the day.
I think I need another miner for double jacking, anybody want to help out? You just need to hold and turn the drill while Marc swings a sledge hammer, I doubt he will miss so no need to worry about a sledge hammer hitting you in the arm :D
