Hi guys, I'm from Polish mine explo team BTE - couple of team/mine related highlights you can find on our facebook profile:

http://www.facebook.com/BTE.Explo

We've been considering visit in UK for last months and eventually we decided to make that first trip this September.
We are going to spend a weekend in North Wales - preferably exploring Croesor and Rhossyd mines - what I guess it's not a surprise Smile

If there is anyone who is planning CRTT in September we'll be more then happy to make a joined trip.
I think our visit might be a good first step to meet and share expieriences.... also if you are interested to learn about polish and czech mines and explo opportunities there - please share your thoughts.

I would be gratefull for any support you can offer since it's going to be our first explo visit in UK Wink

Hi hispo33

When in September are you thinking of coming?

I'm based in North Wales and would be really happy to join you for some trips - including the Croesor Rhosydd trips.

If I can fit it in I would be up for joining you for a few trips. I can speak Polish as well, not that you would need a translator, your English seems pretty good.

Do Zobaczenia

Thanks for youre feedback, I'll let you know dates once we fix them - it should take us approx. 1 more week to finalize timing.

Don't be concerned on communication site - every BTE member is fluent in english. On the other hand would be nice to exchange couple of sentences in polish - glad to have you interested in a meeting Mr Mike Smile

I have checked data available on this web site for both mines. Looks like there is a plan of workings for Rhosydd but there is nothing simmilar for Croesor - is there any place I could get Croesor plan?

Send me your email by PM hispo33 and I'll email you a plan.

Keep us updated about when in September you're visiting (I guess a few people will be occupied on the weekend of 24/25 due to Hidden Earth - the annual UK caving conference) but as long as I'm free when your group is in N Wales I'll be there Smile

Looks like we have a nice flight connection for 10-11 September weekend, so this is my proposal.
Idea is to arrive on Friday and departure on Monday next week so we should have full weekend available for exploration.

That's great news - hopefully we can get a small group of people together to do some Welsh mines with you. Look forward to meeting you all in September Thumbs Up
