CH47 -Chook by the looks

Love the way some of the engine instruments are rotated so that the needles all line up when things are GOOD.

Ensham it is. Dragline number 1 (the oldest one there).

Believe it or not it is sitting at "ground level" and not in one of the pits and with the water at that level it is about 8 metres deep.

One of the guys up there emailed me yesterday and said that there was 100,000 mega litres of water in the mine (approx) which is more than in most Qld dams.

I don't think they will be going back to work for a while yet.

I bet there is a Mine Manager feeling decidely uneasy here, with the Directors looking to get someone's guts for garters ! There will be plenty of buck passing going on with the Mine Planning Engineers in the firing line, or finding some consultant they can all crucify. It is beyond my belief that some of the millions of tons of overburden was not used to make the mine flood- proof. Other mining outfits take note!
Here is a link to more photos of this mess. http://s248.photobucket.com/albums/gg177/MrsEssum/

I wonder if they will reopen that coal mine. If they do, what will it cost to get it operational again? There appear to be major earthworks needed, rebuilding roads and haul tracks, walls, levies etc., also the cost of fixing the machinery, pumping out the water, desilting the mine and making sure it is dry, stable and safe to get back into... quite an operation I suspect!

Thanks for the photos in the link DF, or should I say Mrs. Essum.
