    Pasminco / Sulphide Corporation  View Printable Version

    Hi Everyone,

    My name's Andrew, I worked on the former sulphide site in 2004-5 capping the slag piles with plastic. I remember a lady taking photo's of pretty much the entire plant shortly before the structural demolition commenced, I was told they were for historical purposes but can't remember if she represented NIHA? Ross from Pasminco took a few of us on a brief walk through the plant (which was fascinating) but I didn't have a camera with me.

    My primary reason for working on the site was simply to have a look inside the place and see how it all worked. I had always loved looking at the place in awe from the carpark since i was a young boy.

    I'm wondering if anyone might have some pictures from inside the plant that you might be prepared to share with me for private viewing? or is there anywhere that I might be able to view or purchase the pictures that the lady took? (must have been hundreds of them taken) Maybe you might be the person i'm referring to?

    I'm especially interested in the Acid plant, Sinter shed and Lead/Zinc refineries.

    I ceased working on the site and moved to Melbourne about the time the wrecking machines went to work, so any demolition pic's of the place would be very interesting also...

    My only momento from the Sulphide works is one of the pushbikes that were used around the place by the workers, I still ride the thing - complete with it's crust of grey residue. Does anyone else have one too??

    Any assistance and/or feedback regarding my search for any pictures from inside the place would be very much appreciated.

    Thanks for your time reading this post...

    Kind Regards,

    Andrew
