yea, was talking to howie yesterday about it. he thinks it would be better left a gangway then put the fireboss office back in next years project! also could go at the mammoth. but if we are going to put in a switch and rail it wont fit in the orchard anyways. which is the plan.

Aren't these mucking machines air powered? You'd have to get some permanent air lines in there with an air compressor to power one of those. Wouldn't be a bad idea in the long run. Would make your jobs a lot easier. Plus it would also give a good excuse to run rail down the cleared out gangways..

well boys we are getting there. what do you guys think, we are 10 feet from the face now? got that timber set in today, that saved the day. that last pile was fighting us for awhile but i think we will win now. thats if they dont come in on tuesday and the pile is on the floor!

what that little pebble, i was bettin on bankesy on carrying that out on his back :lol: but if he cant that will definatly push the time past 3:30, we have to figure on breaking it up and that could push it to 3:32. :wink: yea, i think we will definatly have her licked next weekend. should be good, anxious to come in on sat morning and see what they have done durning the week. howie mentioned another timber set! he is planning 3 more relatively close together until we reach the face. that would be good to keep some close at that spill.

yea i was actually surprised at that too. also it was amazing that it was staying up as long as it did today too. it seemed to be more solid than it was yesterday. also all the planks they put up there had to help shut off the chute.
