Here's the Struck oil adit from Greendale, only goes about 300 feet. You can still see a bit of quartz at the end but its all caved in.

HTY, mate I had to go through and delete a whole heap of your "temporary" pictures, if you don't want people to see what you're doing then please don't put them up, it ruins the flow of threads when I have to delete your pics and the posts that are with them. I had to delete litterally hundreds of your broken links, so please have a think about what you're posting before you post them as it can create a lot of work deleting all your dead links.

I'm not having a go at you as you post some awesome stuff, I'd just prefer that the pics and stuff you post stays here to keep the threads intact as they were meant to be.

Thanks

Good stuff, are you cleaning out an old adit and planning to shoot off that when you pick up the reef or is that all new work there? Either way it looks like a serious bit of work, hope you get some good colour out of it

Cool, all hand tools then? You using anything specific to hard rock for digging or just pick and shovel? (no details necessary if you don't want to share, I'm just interested to know what sort of equipment you'd use for that sort of work)

try not to claim only using hand tools if it's not the case. It's false advertising!
