Default 3400 feet below surface!!

I figured I would share some underground pics I took while working this summer in Thompson, Manitoba (8 hours north of Winnipeg and north of the 55th parallel) I was working in a big underground shop and the 3400 level of 1 of the mines up there, I am a level 2 apparentice HD mechanic and am back in school now . I tired to resize the pics so they wouldnt take up a ton of room, and they were taken with an old iphone so they arent the greatest, Enjoy!

1 of the 2 service bays (200 feet long by 40 feet wide -approx. the 2nd side was nearly twice as wide) didnt look like this too often LOL

This is a CAT 8 Yard scoop tram used for moving ore that has been blasted, This one was crushed by a fall of ground, squished the top end of the motor and rad, entire motor and rad were replaced..

Standing on top of a rock bolter looking down the smaller bay scoop tram infront and mine cat personnel carrier, the bolters have a sizzer lift that goes about 20 feet in the air

20 ton crane with a 10 ton behind it in the bigger bay

Maclean rock bolter on the 100,000 pound lift in the wash bay, in for a service

Me on top of a bolter

2 of the tradesmen I worked with this summer looking at an 8 yard scoop

Another rock bolter with the sizzer partially up and brand new boom assembly that I got to install! These are used from putting 4'-12' rods (bolts) into the ceiling and walls in the mine with steel mesh to keep it from caving in

A not full grown 3.5 yard next too a full grown 8 yard scoop, with a dog humper hanging on the back hahah he had 30 years so no one told him what to do

8 yard with a flat tire

CAT 30 ton rock truck

Atlas Copco 2 boom Jumbo drill, used for drilling the face of a drift to plant explosives

Hose reals on the right with engine oil, tranny fluid, hyd. fluid etc.

I had never really been underground before (went a couple hundred feet at a tourist attraction when I was a Kid, this was the best and coolest thing I have ever done. I worked up there for 3 months and want to go back underground when school is finally done in april!
