Mission (Impossible) Mine, California


John pumps the fuel primer while Dave engages the starter; and the huge 6 cyl diesel roars to life.


We set the running speed to produce 500VDC and now we can raise and lower the mine elevator from the control room!


Ok now it's time to start up the 3 cyl diesel that provides the camp with 220/ 110VAC.




Let's try out this big'o saw !


Out in the middle of the desert and we are fully powered and cutting wood!


Lets flip this switch and see what happens.
All the conveyor belts have come to life, lets put rocks on the belts!
Anybody want a ride?


Job well done IM (Desert Dog) Force, time to kick back under the glow of the now working lights.
