The company's mine, based near Whitby has been named as 'Woodsmith Mine' after two of the project’s original geologists. This involved the unveiling of the new name plaque on Friday during a ceremony to mark the start of construction on site. Thumb Up

The sheer scale of this scheme seems to be dawning on people as construction work gets underway, well done to all involved in bringing the project to fruition and those involved in it's construction going forward, deep mining in the UK is far from dead!!Thumbs Up

Latest news not so good.

It was reported this week that after a reappraisal the estimated construction cost has risen by £463M, in part due to the 23 mile tunnel to Teesside needing to be wider and with a thicker lining, and to a longer lead-in time to full production.

Also there is doubt in some quarters as to the amount of the product which will be in demand. As a result the share price has dropped close on 20% knocking over £250M off the value of the company.

To be fair, the requirement for the 23 mile long tunnel is absolutely insane.

Why, how else would they export 20MT of product from the middle of a National Park every year??Blink

Sirius ‘s problems are compounded when you realise that there are potentially other K deposits, which also need development
.
Most of these are opencast which look a lot more attractive than working a mine over I mile deep!
