Hi Wilf. These pics look like they might be a small private mine? Not trying to sleaze any info, just making a comment based on the type of truck/equipment, mine entrance etc.

Is this a smaller private mine?

Nice photo's Wilf. Was that getting crushed at Black Cameron? How long ago were these shots taken? Pretty amazing that One tree has been mined for well over a hundred years and they reckon there is still heaps of gold down there.
