So, what do you think so far?

This is an ambitious project - many hours have already been spent in preparing and collating the information, and designing the site. Many more hours are yet to come. Please bookmark the entry page and revisit us soon to see how things are developing.

The site commenced quietly in February 1999 and we have high hopes that the project will develop into a world class resource for students of history and coal mining communities around the world (especially in the Illawarra).

We would love to hear your comments, impressions, criticisms, suggestions, and most of all, your enthusiasm!
