Wor a lode of ole squit Boy!!!!

Ah! what's this then ?????
Whilst clearing away some dense vegetation adjacent to the track in the 'boondocks' at the Railway recently, a small corrugated tin building was found, which seemed to be quite old. On closer inspection it appeared to be the entrance to some sort of mine with railway tracks leading up to it. You can see from the attached photos that the old signs on the structure clearly identify it as the entrance to a ‘Squit mine’!!
We are all very intrigued at this find. We have all often encountered the phrase of “That’s just a load of old squit” in these parts, but we never dreamt that we would find the apparent source of it ??????

and, it is very interesting to note that we appear to have found Mine No 2, so where is Mine No 1?? Do you know ? If so we would be delighted to hear from you !
