Timberman

timberman working underground

The work of a timberman at Geevor was a skilled, varied and often challenging one. 

There are many tasks underground that he could be called upon to undertake such as repair work, support work, spreaders in stopes, casings, raise hole coverings, chutes or box holes, as well as making sure that there was a good supply of timber on all the levels he was responsible for.
