How long has Boulby been operating?

What problems did they encounter tunneling through
various strata? How much info has Sirius gleaned from their

RE: Deep shafts: how to sink/build?
Today 12:34
Hi GK
Not all potash needs deep shafts. I see you sold out of salt lake potash? And there’s Emmerson EML with a shallow resource ... looks attractive enough to already have promise of capital funding at 5% .. very different to SXX. SXX still has the possibility to sell everything it mines which if it gets a good price should still give a good return. But I think spreading ones risk looks appropriate. Thoughts?

To add: these risk with creeping salt formations will only apply to Woodsmith with regard to the depths where the shafts cut through these formations and so how they are constructed. The deeper Polyhalite and the anhydrite just above are 'strong' and 'brittle' and do not creep.

WW re from your 5/6. more on shafts, designs, failures and the salt layer 'creepers':

covering the options of to line or not in 'squeeze' conditions. Looks at Boulby and one of the Russian mines.

https://inis.iaea.org/collection/NCLCollectionStore/_Public/27/045/27045826.pdf?r=1&r=1

this more about methods to control inflows. examines the experience at various Canadian mines and geos.

https://www.cdc.gov/niosh/mining/Userfiles/works/pdfs/cfoue.pdf

a history of some of the failures in mines in general over the years.

Not read through these yet, just skimmed.

Sirius/DMC have a lot of experience out there to call on, but non the less getting these shafts right at the outset is crucial. 'FP' will be a big day.

Saga? Showing your age Brad. Lol.
I got a message from my daughter wishing me a happy Father’s Day so I assume it is.

I let the full comp fun out in my GS and when I tried to get it renewed I ended up with assessors out looking at it. They came to the conclusion that they couldn’t insure it full comp, full stop! Not even a hefty hike in the premium! I often wonder at the Spanish sense in commerce!
The RT is insured through a deal with BMW and at €520 full comp for the first year on a brand new €25k bike I thought was pretty reasonable. Only drawback is it’s all a one off annual payment and having not taken finance on the bike, it’s left me a tad skint!
I guess I’ll just take my cafe con leche minus the leche for a while. :-))

Or both? Doddy would not have copied Sean I reckon - so he was probably first!
The worst taxi driver story I heard was hopefully a joke!
Guy goes to the first taxi, and asks if he'll take him home (£20+ fare) for a blow job cos he's broke!
Gets short shift, so he repeats this down the rank until reaches his victim!
He asks if he'll take him home for £25 and says the others would not! A good deal on a quiet night from the back of the rank, the driver accepts and takes him .... but is ribbed for the next 20 years about taking the guy for a blow job :0(

Got a quote from Bennetts (now Saga) £288 fully comp £400 compulsory excess, £100 voluntary.
I put in ncb of 0 years but I think it may apply retrospectively to 2002 if only I could find how to get into web-chat!
Phoned a 0344 number and they said I could use web chat (on a recorded message).
Nearly all their numbers are cussed 0330 premium rate calls and can I find how to start web chat?
I wrote off a RF900 and bought half of the RS with the insurance money (rest 18 months interest free over 18 months) so it is only a couple of years IF the RF claim does not cancel it! I'll have to hook out my last insurance quote methinks.

Is it Fathers day in Spain? My boys are taking me out for lunch so I should sleep well tonight :O)

Brad, I hadn’t any insurance for a while and went with Carole Nash. Fairly decent cover at that time. Not so sure now. Haven’t been in UK for some years!
I like the UK insurance system. The bike specific companies are are absent where I am now and others are very expensive.

What is 070?
Phone numbers starting 070 can easily be mistaken for mobile phone numbers, which also start 07. However, in reality phone numbers that start 070 are charged at a premium rate.

In the case of this PhonePayPlus investigation, the four premium rate number services are charged at 50 pence per call, plus 3.95 pence per minute at all times from landlines, and potentially considerably more from mobile phones.

Scotty , it sounds like my previous long message disappeared before you saw it, so you'd have missed my quip about being one of the first born again, born again bikers? I guess it is rare?
The roads are quite good for bikes around here - for me to get back in the saddle the roman road stretch on the Poole to Dorchester road is ideal to get an impression of speed again. My favourite bit of road was arriving in the opposite direction from the Bakers arms to the water tower on Tower park. A dual carriageway with beautiful curves over Fleetsbridge flyover in particular! Then they built a fire station near the flyover and created a tightish roundabout for fire engines (with their own traffic light) and access to the Holes Bay dual carriageway (another nice stretch, but now a stupid 40 and 50 mph speed limits apply to the whole lot from the approach to the roundabout.

I used to like Sedgemoor where you could be air-borne if you did not spot the severe hump back bridges or that there was a 90 degree bend and a rough track appearing where you thought the road was going straight on. Cannot remember if there were road signs but I guess not?

Anyone else getting an oops message from lse on sending posts?
My last 3 or 4 have failed first time.
I open another sxx session to see if it arrived (usually had in the past, but lately not) so I don't double up, like you after that stupid schoolboy story, and then I use back arrow and resend if it is missing. Nearly always goes straight through then. Need to report to the beta team but not if it is only me getting it.

The subject line reminds me of a classroom poll years ago.
The teacher asked a class of 17 year olds how often they had sex. One boy at the back started jumping up and down with excitement. To cut a long story short he had them raise their hands, starting with more than twice a night, nightly, once a week etc until he got to once a quarter. The boy at the back was still jumping around but had not put his hand up.

The teacher gave up and asked him directly, how often? The boy said annually!
Teach said, how sad, but why are you so animated?
The boy said "tonight is the night!".

Not up to tuckupp standard and I was that boy!

Hey Brad,
It’s great to hear you are looking to get the bike back on the road. You’ve got some amazing routes around you heading over the New Forrest and coastal routes.
The thing with insurance is they tend to only ask how long you’d held a license and not necessarily when you last ride a bike. So you may be pleasantly surprised.
I’m loving my bike just now and thinking of creating a website dedicated to routes down around Andalucía. It’ll encourage me to get more miles in and get out and make more use of my camera.

There seems to be an element of unhappiness around the board at the mo. I reckon it’s by those that use this place as a sole reference point for their research.
We’ve watched this morph from a closed loop slurry pipe with 6 million tonnes per annum into something too enormous for some to fathom.
Change for us is progress. Evolve or die.

Hi Scotty, I don't know whether you read my message on the bike before the whole thread was deleted, presumably because one of the fun loving criminals (flc) on here reported it?
I'll therefore keep thisshort for several reasons!
Bike is booked in to be collected on Independence day, mission to get it roadworthy and MOT'd.
Garage asked if the wheels are 'free' after all the years it has been parked up.
I was strong enough to sit astride it but not to push and pull. I have a luggage rack at the back of the seat which is strong enough to balance the bike and roll it.
Brand new chain and sprocket were rusty but I was able to WD40 them and push it back and forth. So new ones needed again I suspect plus the petrol tank emptied into the sump so that needs cleaning up. New battery too and whatever else he finds. I have been too scared to try and start it in case it catches fire so it is years since it fired up.
Might be expensive but it is the kids inheritance I'll be spending and they'll probably get it back on SXX eventually.

Leg and foot are easing but as they change I feel different sensations - numbness and tingling mainly.
I was able to change gear with the foot when I sat on it, so I have not given up hope of tonning it up again one day.
Not sure what the insurance will be after 17 years off it? Will be more than the £118 it was after the millenium I reckon?

Alan., If you are still registered on here (your name is not on the history) I wish you well. ii have not charged me anything since leaving. Maybe the flc works for them and has lost his job - I hope!

thought he was going to win a bet with Parky that he could not get Kylie to use her hands twice in that manner and have a triple.
Sean is claimed to have paid a taxi driver the correct fare and then, as he got out, popped something into the cabby's top pocket, and said have a drink on me later!

It was a tea bag.

Sean Connery was interviewed by Michael Parkinson, and bragged that despite his 72 years of age, he could still have sex three times a night. Kylie Minogue, who was also a guest, looked intrigued. After the show, Kyle said, “Sean, if I am not being too forward, I’d love to have sex with an older man. Let’s go back to my place.” So they go back to her place and have great sex. Afterwards, Sean says, “If you think that was good, let me sleep for half an hour, and we can have even better sex. But while I’m sleeping, hold my ?alls in your left hand and my ?ick in your right hand.” Kylie looks a bit perplexed, but says, “Okay”. He sleeps for half an hour, awakens, and they have even better sex. Then Sean says, “Kylie, that was wonderful. But if you let me sleep for an hour, we can have the best sex yet. But again, hold my ?alls in your left hand, and my ?ick in your right hand.” Kylie is now used to the routine and complies. The results are mind blowing. Once it’s all over, and the cigarettes are lit, Kylie asks “Sean, tell me, does my holding your ?alls in my left hand and your ?ick in my right stimulate you while you’re sleeping?” Sean replies, “No, but the last time I slept with a slut from Melbourne, she stole my wallet.”

Hi Gerthrobe,

Many thanks for the donation, it is so good when the Government gives something back. Gift Aid applies to the Macmillan Nurses hike. Unfortunately, Andy's Man Club has not registered yet with Just Giving so I can only take donations by Crowd Funding for them. However, mental health is so important that I will just plough ahead and raise the money. Young men are dying everyday in the UK, I won't wait until the paperwork is done.

Chesh, yes, Bracken (another rescue dog) is much better looking than me :-) and more intelligent, he is a shrewd judge of bacon, oops, I meant character.

Jo, Truth & Justice and Philip. Many thanks for your donations. It is appreciated. Seeing the donations starting to come in really does inspire. Training in the hills, as pleasurable as it is, even on Wednesday with the driving wind and rain, is tough but I just keep going knowing that eyes are on me.
