View of productive zone dipping under overlying strata

Novello Mine, Masvingo, Masvingo, Zimbabwe
Latitude & Longitude (WGS84): 19° 56' 60'' South , 30° 58' 60'' East
Latitude & Longitude (decimal): -19.95, 30.9833333333

Visited on Monday 6th June 2016. No one currently working the site. Plenty of reworking of the dumps evident and some newer cross cuts into the soil in a couple of places.
The productive zone in the original pit appears to be diving under the overlying rock. There would need to be a fairly major excavation to allow access to the zone.
Any current production appears to be from other pits in the region.
Entering the co-ordinates into a GPS doesn't take you to the mine as the road is closed about 2km from the site.
