Anyone know what's below the chuck/choc stone in the open stope. Apart from certain death?

As far as I am aware it’s choked. I think you can get out under it further down after the big ladder. When we explored the lower stopes when they pumped the water we didn’t see any sign of it breaking through at the lower level.

You can get into the stope under the boulder (I think someone did on Thursday), but I've not really done much more than poke my head out under it. I don't know if it continues down, is choked, or it just runs blind.

That was me. Just wondered what was further down behind the spoil and below?

I guess that could be the big collapse that blocked the incline.
