The police phoned today

The president of the Bundy Rodeo Committee is missing. A paramedic found his motorbike & helmet in tact but nothing of the man. Somewhere out in cyberspace there is contact information for the Historical Society with my number on it so I received a call from the police asking if we had any old mining maps showing the mine shafts. I called Wendy the current president & curator who said "Quite likely" and went off to look and in the meantime I searched online for anything relevant...and I dare I say that I very quickly struck goldhttps://webgis.dme.qld.gov.au/webgis/webqmin/viewer.htm  This has ALL the registered mines in Qld, including the abandoned ones. I was mildly surprised at how many abandoned mines are around that area so I suppose it is quite possible the bloke went to see what he could see. The geography is not rough but with two good wet seasons the bush is pretty dense now. Fingers crossed but after 4 days now I think they would be lucky to find him alive.

  2. I suppose Bundy police don't often have to do searches in mining areas so why would they?

  5. Yes, I thought it was odd he needed a lawyer for something like that.
