About: GREGORY COAL MINE BHP
Gregory is going to live again! First coal should be September 2019
Good job Loza - I have been looking for stuff on the old mine and stumbled across this. I swung the old girl many a time over about a 5 year period up to the time I left in Oct. 2002. I was part of the reclamation crew on the dozers but spent a lot of time on 24 over the last few years. Best job I ever had - the dragline was sweet to operate. I'll never forget it.
Great video. I did my time as a sparkie at Gregory and spent many a downday on brushes and lights etc. Sadly the shut never fully completed and finally the plug to H08 sub pulled about 3 years ago. Great trip down memory lane. Thankyou. Bob
Saraji going ahead too mate so I have heard, awesome work...& yeah back in good old Emerald at the Coal face ; )
Supervisor at Saraji, but living in Yeppoon - you living back in Emerald?
Yeah BRO we had a Blast Alright & most of us turned out alright too suprisingly ....... LOL Where are you now ?
G'day Loz, nice work mate. I proud to say I did my time at Gregory. The industry's changed a lot, we don't have anywhere near as much fun as we used to anymore, but that's the way it goes.
Good to see your still liven the dream - rock on!

I have to agree Parksy, who knows where it may end up ; )
Great vid Loza. Sad to see another machine parked. Hope they fine another place to put it to work, especially since they just did an upgrade on the old girl.
