The big rock buttress at about half completion. This buttress is located just north of Waste Area #1 and will end up being about 150' high. Rock from Area #2 and #3 is blasted, loaded into the big 150 and 200 ton trucks, and brought here where it is dumped into the buttress. A bulldozer then smooths the dumped stone out into a uniform layer. Photo taken in May 1999.
