This is an old gold seam. It would have been filled with gold bearing quartz, which was dug out with hammer and pick and replaced with struts to stop the seam caving in. A nice compact environment to work for for a few hours at a time!

All images on this website have been shot using either a Canon S40 compact digital camera, or a Canon 20D DLSR. I'm something of a Canon fan. :) Most images have been post processed with Adobe Photoshop and the CurveMeister plugin. I thoroughly recommend CurveMeister, BTW. It's a great piece of software.
