CBH Rasp Mine in Broken Hill
The mine in my photo was taken over by CBH in 2010 and the underground development recommenced in April 2011 and as the photo I took today shows it is still going.
Whilst I was growing up it was known as The Broken Hill South Silver Mining Co. Ltd and initially began mining in 1888.
These mine heads can be seen from a distance as they are upon a hill, south hill close to where I live.
Broken Hills main industry is mining and over my fifty five years of living here there have been many ups and downs dramatic in both directions from employee deaths, strikes and unemployment.
Do you have any working mines near where you live?
