The fate of the faltering South Mine headframe is expected to be known in the next couple of days.

CBH had been waiting on board approval for a plan to put $40,000 towards restoring the headframe, along with a $10,000 commitment from City Council.

However, the recent placement of hay bales at the base of the structure has left many locals wondering about the stability of the old poppet head and what will become of it in the near future.

Mayor Wincen Cuy told ABC radio yesterday that he would discuss the head frame with CBH and investigate what financial help Council could offer, but conceded the final decision would likely rest with CBH.
