Telfer Images


Here's some random images from Telfer - some are "stolen" from other people (thanks!).  Random order really.




The plaque that commerates the opening of the original town. 
Telfer is no longer a town - it's a fly in fly out camp.  But you can read the history on Wikipedia.

Road Train at Telfer - Being some 400kms from the port efficiency is important.
These road trains bring in diesel fuel and take out the copper/gold concentrate.





In July2012 we had some scrub fires in our borefields.  Lots of smoke very visible from the Village.
The benefits of a good firebreak are evident!





Telfer is primarily powered by 3 of these jet engine turbines.
This one had reached it's 50,000 hours and so goes back the factory for a rebuild.
