Report by Vince

Vince, Tav, Jon, Jake, Nick, Duncan, Mike and Leonie (? MCG)

The bang did good! Lots of lovely shattered rock and gravel to shift. Initially, we concentrated on moving the larger lumps to give a bit more room to work, there was plenty of them. Some of the lumps required reduction to skip size which Nick seemed happy to oblige. Towards the end of the session we moved back a couple of positions to ease the movement of spoil out of the cave. About 20 filled bags were left at the end and there’s plenty more to bag up on Saturday. Then the levering and hammering of fractured rock can be progressed. All needs to be cleared ready for the next application of IRS.

About 20 skip loads of rock made it all the way out of the cave ready for integration into the wall. Lots of people and another good productive effort!

Took the camera but, didn’t take any photos!
