West Orchard Gangway project.

Our winter project this year is to open up the west orchard gangway at the pioneer tunnel. The following shots are taken from various weekend work sessions with Howe, John and Dave from the pioneer tunnel with Chris, Banks and Adam from UGM. We started driving the West Orchard Gangway back to the face on january 14th 2007. The work includes replacing several timber sets in the beginning of the gangway, cleaning out and proping up one of the coal chutes, and retimbering the rest of the gangway. Also be sure to view or add to the discussion of our work here on our Coal Forum.
