I'm sure this was the same site that was in a recent issue CP&M Magazine with the operator using a small helicopter.

just google Ensham Mine floods. it's here in central Queensland. A large dragline also went under, she was dryed out and running again a couple weeks ago.

Great pictures.
I am trying to get hold of some pictures of a MF300 loader fitted with a back acter I was called out to at Cockwood harbour Devon in 1983.
I was told it was stuck and could not be started.The water was up to the worklights ontop of the cab.Must have been 7/8 foot deep.I did not have diving gear on the van :lol:
