Today we have a new post and video on the Helengon Mine, named in honor of the legendary John Allen. I hope you'll check 'em out.

Another great visit to the Thunder Mesa, thank you!

Can you talk about how you fill the ore cars when you spot them here? Do you have some sort of loading bin in the rock work, or were they just reset for the video? I did notice that that cars spotted looked fresh from the free box, while the loaded ones have seen a bit more service.

Thanks,

Thayer

Sure, I just swapped them out in the video. In actual operations, the ore loads are removable from the cars. They are made from solid blocks of foam, painted and decorated with a covering of raw "ore."

Thanks! I wasn't sure if you were loading and dumping as part of your operations or not.
