  • Mine Management in consultation with the chief inspector of mines investigate the size and positioning of additional signs, particularly in relation to ore passes and open stopes.
  • We consider there are adequate rules and procedures in relation to signs and barricades, but it is imperative that personnel be instructed to observe those rules and procedures at all times.
