John Cooper, Rob Harper, Mike Kousiounis and Adrian Vanderplank. With Rob at the foot of the shaft, Mike hauling and John hauling and transferring 30 rather heavy loads of rocks were sent along to Adrian for stacking at the foot of Four-Tonne Shaft. There is still plenty more clatch and large boulders to sort out at the bottom. Good draught tonight. 2½ hours.

John Cooper, Wayne Starsmore and Adrian Vanderplank. With Adrian at the digging face John and Wayne cleared all the debris from the tunnel and stacked it at the base of the bottom shaft. Wayne then joined Adrian for a spell whilst John finished breaking up boulders then swapped with John for a final clearance session. There is now sufficient debris at the base of the bottom shaft for two hauling sessions. Way on still looking interesting. 2½ hours.
