Earthmovers' blood is yellow

While driving through the mine two weeks ago, Grant drove down into the pit as part of his evening inspection.

As we approached the new drill area, I zoomed in on the drill rigs which were in operation.

Health and Safety is paramount on the mine and the notice warns you not to overstep the boundary

Driving along the haul road, parallel to the airstrip, Grant stopped while I photographed the newest toy on the block: a yellow CAT bulldozer. The work had been completed by this gargantuan machine and now it was driven onto a low-bed to return to the mine area. No trundling those mighty and expensive tracks along to road and lessening their life!
The yellow CAT bulldozer; the newest toy in Grant's box!

As my header suggests, the earthmoving miner's blood is yellow: CAT yellow! 

I hope you're all having a great first day of the week.

  3. Hi There, We are home from a trip to the gorgeous West VA mountains –where we celebrated our anniversary… I’ll be blogging about this time for awhile –since it was so special.

    Nice trip to the mines.. Grant obviously does a great job there --and works hard to keep everyone safe... That bulldozer is HUGE.

    Hugs,
