Recently we toured the coalmines at Rotowaro - these are some of the photos that I took. This page is still developing!
First photo shows the remains of the carbonisation plant. Remember Carbonettes?
The old coal mine by the carbonisation plant - showing an old underground mine!
Larger photo of the above mine
Looking at a working mine
Over $3,000,000 in Truck and Loader!
They say that coal from Rotowaro burns easy! Look at it burn when being mined! And notice the square shape of the coal? - was an underground mine, and you can see the old tunnels.
General view of the mine above!
More burning coal, more dust! Thank Goodness for air-conditioning!
End of the line!
Old photograph of Rotowaro - now no longer. Circle at top right is the carbonisation plant, circle on top left is the old coal mine, and large circle at the bottom- that includes the old town - that's the new opencast mine!
Will tidy up this area, more details to come, but it's up and running!!
