The Almost Daily Report



Mining is really fun, honest!


For the enjoyment and edification of the many arm chair adventurers out there, we have gotten into the habit of posting the daily e-mail reports from the mine each summer on the internet. The reports generally begin rolling in around the end of May and continue until early September, with the occasional hiatus due to a day off for the crew, or just plain laziness. The habit of posting them to the internet was actually begun by John Veevaert of Trinity Minerals in 2000 and has since been carried on by UK Mining Ventures.

Each year some people claim to have read every single report as they emerge, and what's more, say they are waiting with great anticipation for the next year's soap opera to begin. Some have even gotten interested enough to visit us at the mine. Perhaps this was only to make sure this wasn't being done on some Hollywood sound stage as some say the Apollo moon landings were. Rest assured, they found it all too real once we gave them a shovel and a pair of Wellies and ask them to help. A few even said they enjoyed getting muddy and cold. Go figure.

And so, if it doth please thee, fine and gentle folk all, read on, enjoy, and feel free to correct my spelling and grammar...
