Guys, I found this wonderful tool..

You can practically see the street view on almost ALL Australian city and some of the outback as well!!! Shocked

go to Google map, zoom in to Australia, and click "street View"

All I can say is that I do live in a beautiful country Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy

When I went to Google's street view and looked at my house I was in my car moving up the driveway!

Google Earth-Street View hasn't found my house yet. I saw a Google Earth car driving around San Antonio, so I guess they are covered.

I don't know what's wrong with those people (Google Earth), they act like I live in the woods or something.................Oh, wait a minute........I do live in the woods!!!

I once asked the nearest high-speed internet service if I could get their service out at my house............The guy said sure, if I were willing to pay for about 10 miles of wire!!! Smart *ss!

I should have figured that....It took me 7 years of arguing and petitioning to get mail delivered to my front gate.

I got a call the other day from the San Antonio news paper wanting me to subscribe to their house delivery. My answer to them was Ha Ha Ha Ha Ha Ha Ha Ha.... ROFL ROFL ROFL ROFL ROFL ROFL ROFL ROFL ROFL

Sure!!!! You want to bet that I never see them.

The advantage is that you can lock the front gate and everyone thinks your gone. Peace and quiet! Ahhhhhh............

I don't have any problems with Google Street View like some. Can't understand what the problem is...the more you zoom in , the less detail is available.

Yea, I really miss the seperation of the neighbors and kin that we had back on the farm. We were either too tired or too busy to visit, it worked great!!

Vince,

What kind of mine is that west of your home. It looks like they are mining limestone to make cement.

Google Earth doesn't work very well for me. It has my address about a mile down the road and you can't see anything very clearly. Google Street is not available down here. The nearest Google Street view is up in San Antonio about 40 miles from here.

Cary

Not a mine mate...its a quarry. Where I am the bedrock is basically granite. They quarry it for road base and anything else that needs that kind of "fill". They also crush the granite boulders into aggregate of various sizes...from 2" right down to dust. The other quarry to the east is now closed, being prepared for development, but it specialised not only in granite boulders but also "deco" decomposed granite...great stuff for dirt motor racing tracks.

Most annoying part is the dust...on a windy day everything gets a fine layer of dust on it.

The bushland behind the eastern quarry is actually a big hill (look at the Terrain Feature), and beyond that is the Army Barracks I was last posted to. I used to enjoy running over that hill...most pleasant jogging through the bush.

Cheers, Vince

Vince,

In the environmental field, we use the term "mine" as more of an action verb, as in "removing of large quantities of materials." We even use the term with water. When large cities move out into the adjacent counties and drill wells to pipe into the cities, is a good example.

We don't have any surface rocks in my area, unless you count sling-shot size. The nearest bedrock is located hundreds of feet below the surface. About 40 miles north of here, they quarry surface limestone. That same layer is faulted downward to over 5,000 feet below the surface here.

Anyway, so much for rocks and geology. (I've got a degree in geology also)

Cary

OK..understand now.

You would have a ball over here with your Geology Degree...in fact Geologists don't do too badly as far as earning money goes. We have a couple of very large mining companies, one of which my son-in-law works for. He is in Mt Isa where they mine silver, lead and zinc.

Mt Isa Mines

He is a Shift Supervisor and works about 3000 metres underground spraying the tunnels with concrete to stabilise them. Reckons he's learning to speak "Rock"...says the rocks are "talking" to him all the time.

We also mine a helluva lot of iron ore and gold in Western Australia, uranium in Northern Territory, Bauxite in Queensland, coal everywhere and a heap of other ores.

Mining in Australia

Cheers, Vince
