Our tour was run by Outwest Tours and the owner, Mickey, had been a miner at Stockton, and was known by most of the Staff at the mine. Stockton is now managed by Solid Energy and state owned. We were 6 of us in a large 4x4 (Toyota Landcruiser), high up with a great viewing window at the front. When we reached ...
