Hi,

Planning on visiting this mine this weekend, however, i am struggling to find any survey for this particular mine. I have the PDHMS releases for the via gellia, goodluck and the adits of the via gellia but none of these provide a detailed survey like they do for the spinney level and ball eye mine etc.

Does anybody have or know where i can find such a survey for silvereye?

Thanks in advance Smile

The Silvereye survey is in the same PDMHS bulletin article (vol 5 no.1) as the Goodluck survey, along with the surveys for Old Gells, Henstocks, and Cawror Slack.

volume 5 thank you! I have been looking at the wrong ones... Looking forward to this one Smile

Has anybody recently lost a green rope bag with a medical kit and waterproof tub containing lots of batteries and reserve head torches?

I found one that was left at the first drop down into jug holes, we had been through the whole system and not saw another soul apart from a couple of groups leaders with youngsters who were leaving as we arrived; so I decided to take it before somebody who wouldn't try to track the owner down did instead...

It does have a name on the medical kit but i cannot remember it off the top of my head its possibly Rich. S group medical kit but i'm not 100%
