In the near surface workings east of the manhole entrance.Typical of the narrower workings with the main fault wall on the right.  Looking north west.Crossing the traverse on the way in.  The passage drops down here to the bottom level from where ore was taken to the hauling shaft, south of the main stope.
Some of the iron and copper banding in the rock on the hanging wall side of the main fault.In the main passage showing an extensive area of iron banding.Copper and iron staining in the wall.
Looking north west.  The picture show not only the main fault on the right but also the second fault on the left which makes much of the open stoping into a wedge shape.  This probably helps the stability of the roof.Crossing the traverse on the return route out.
