I’d just like to say a big thank you to all those who attended the Bantycock opencast mine field trip and to all those who put the time and effort into making this event possible. We had been informed on our arrival that the lifespan of the quarry is very much in doubt due to the difficulties and rising costs of extracting the Gypsum. So with planned visits to Bantycock next year I can’t stress enough…anyone wishing to come along should join the Stamford and District Geological Society as soon as possible. As there is a limit to how many members in the group can visit at anyone time.
Here are a few photos of ( Bantycock opencast mine ) just too show you some of the members finds from the day and how vast this opencast mine is.
It truly was a great day. There will be a field trip report to follow soon.
