Shaft Area

Area of the first shaft (on left as you enter the chamber).

The rubble (on left) is fill that has come down the shaft.

Could this shaft be George's (or Old) Shaft ? If it is, what is the other shaft? It isn't believed that the "ladder" shaft went below the 40 yard level. So is there a third, unknown shaft near George's shaft?

Note: The black staining of natural oil oozing from cracks in the rocks on the far wall.
