Today I went on the TMC tour of Mount Morgan. Although the 'C' part of the tour which is the caverns is no longer part of the tour as there was a rock cave in and the Queensland government decided it wasn't safe for it to be open, it is the part of the tour that deals with the dinosaurs. However we did do the town and mine part of the tour.
Most of the town I had seen but it is good being on a tour as there is more explanation like there is an abundunce of Mango trees around town which is from the Chinese produce days which kept the town fed during the mining era. There are also lychee and other fruits that like the warmer climate.
One stop was up to the lookout that we had already cycled up and the mini bus did struggle just like Neil and I!
Just down from that is the remains of the last swing bridge and just below that you can see a pool of water from the Dee river that is contaminated. This is at the south end of town and the Dee river is contaminated basically from the mine and south. The no.7 dam we swim in is north of the mine so it is not contaminated.
And a pocket calculator ...
