Exploring this Bartye mine was a bit of a tiring challenge, the climb to get this stunning mine was a lot worse than I thought it would be. Climbing the hill road to get here, covered in ice and snow, steep hardly describes this accurately.
Upon reaching the summit to this mine, a steep descent to the bottom was required, and it was a long long way down, 250m down the winding drives to the live face.
Brand new flat loader.
Quite a big shoveling machine.
Intersection of road ways.
Flat loader left at the side of the road, never to be used again.
The drilling rig.
On the way back down there was time to get a pic of the machines that bring the workers to the mine.
