21st June 2018: with Brockers, Nick, Jake, Tav, Jonathon and Mike.

I went to the dig-face to look at a potential boulder blockage, Brockers and Nick were behind me. While I concentrated on cleaning around the boulders and into an alcove, they continued to expand the working space at the bottom of the pit. Filled buckets and the occasional were removed from the dig at a good, steady rate.

By the end of the session, the boulders don’t appear to be too much of a problem at the present, they can be worked around and dug-out, if necessary.

Another fine digging session, thirsty work, time for refreshments.
