    How hard is it to get some concrete and steel in there? What kind of costs?
    This one does not see any left over drill holes of any kind in the clips. Was there hand removal of rock after blasting that removed any left over drill holes?
    The wet mud is going to be a problem.

    A lady prospector friend I took up there during the filming of these got stuck in the portal and I had to drag her out. You're coming out of a very tight spot, going uphill, with no handholds or places to really push with your feet. You can't dig your heels in and arch your back to push out because there's not enough room to arch your back up. It's an adventure.

    May be a winch line of some type should be set up to reduce any problems for everyone. Maybe some type of steel cage can be used in the work area down the road for falling rocks. Just some ideas.

    Spend $100K to make $10K. Why bother?

    I'll retract my original response and those subsequent for a more reasonable response.

    The mine is worth a great deal. That's why.

    The collapse goes from rib to rib and is several feet deep off the sill. The plan is to move some rock off the pile, scale down the loose as much as possible, put in temp supports, then remove the remainder. Sometime this late spring/early summer we'll come in with split sets and straps to tie it all together.

    Using a scaling bar to bar down loose rock is the way to go. It keeps you out from under the rock and you can keep your eyes on it too.

    Excuse me sir. I happen to be the president of a small mining company. We are doing the same thing you are doing except with old placer deposits. Take your arrogant comments elsewhere.

    It is not meant to be factual numbers. It means why spend a fortune to make a small amount. I think you understood that.

    Why would you assume anything about values in the mine itself when you're only allowed to see what we decide to let you see?

    ghostminer, I will suggest you calm things down also.
    especially when posting in another members thread.

    Seems to me at times you may be the cause of the unrest.

    Thank you for being the voice of reason for both parties. I've done your job for an NFL team's forums and brother, I don't miss it a bit.
