We will try and pick the launder up on the other side of the collapse.
My impression is that the launder predates the last working of the mine 1840-1880ish.
It was put in to drain a level in the workings in the field above, and was retained but covered sometime in the 1840’s.
Towards the crusher house the roof has collapsed, however there is a branch to the left this also has a collapse, I crawled along and took a couple of shots.
If we can pick the launder up again further west it may lead into the higher levels of the mine. Very exciting!!
