One of the former Sallet Hole miners now works at Milldam Mine he also worked in the other mine that connected to Sallet, sorry Tony cannot remember his name though

You could give them a ring and see if they can help.

Terry "Bograt" Jackson (former DCA chairman) is an ex-Sallet miner but he's not been in good health of late - hopefully he's on the mend.

I also have some copies of 1970s plans of the mine, too big for me to scan I'm afraid!

Oh God of Sarcasm, thanks for everything...

Exspleo worked down there for a while, but the person you want to talk to is Ron Amner at Chesterfield.

We could photograph the plans lay'd out flat, done correctly it's just as good as scanning.
