Moline Mine.

(contact Bobbyboy about this story)

In April, 1964 I was on my way to look for a new waterfall that had been seen (Jim Jim) and called in at Moline. It was in 'mothballs' at that time and the caretaker/manager was only too pleased to talk about the workings. He told me that the world's biggest lump of pitchblende had recently been won from the mine. It weighed 1600lbs (1964) He had a fist sized specimen of uranium on his desk and ran a geiger counter over it. Only time I saw a needle go off the dial!
