    well see the problem with running away to sea is ...after you find out you can't run on it you sink after awhile. I know it's upsetting but it's just the way it is .

    Isn't that the place RTZ want to close down? Or is it picking up again after the downturn?

    Whichever, that's one helluva job to land, congratulations

    Ummm this one will be open for a long time to come 2020 ..it's a Rio Tinto mine. They're stopping the open cut and they are down below now .

    47 degrees with a humidity level of 90 is not a good place to work but it's a foot in the door and good pay. Mate I'll be getting a **** kickers job.

    turndown? RTZ?

    You'll be kicking tyres? :-)

    the Downturn - the Credit Crunch, the recession

    RTZ - Rio Tinto Zinc


    As far as I understand it, shortly after the start of the downturn RTZ laid off several hundred workers, mostly from the Argyle whilst they debated its future but they must have sorted all that out and come up with the investment.

    I hold my hands up - as a softie whinging Pom I'd be dead in a week under those conditions - more power to you for taking it on and I hope it goes well for you.

    OK, I admit it - I had to read that twice to be sure you'd written what I thought I'd read
