Default Re: From 60/40 to Radon. A Radio & TV Engineer's recollection.

No problem.

I eventually left the tin mine to further my mining career (basically to try and earn more cash) Long story short, I ended up down a gold mine, the old Dome Mine near to the Hollinger and the McIntyre mines up near Porcupine Lake in Canada, the section I worked down's all gone now as is the small village that grew up around it, just a great hole in the ground left, the riding shaft was No: 3 shaft, known as Old Red, anyways I arrived there basically broke and things didn't work out, the best way to sum up what happened is to listen to the chorus in the song "Sixteen Tons"

The company store...
