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.
