Looking at Buckner Gap from the south side. The haul road has been moved onto the top of the rock embankment in the foreground, and the big trucks now travel this way to where the shovels load them with rock at Buckner Gap. The embankment is nearly at the proper elevation, so you can tell how far the excavation has to go at Buckner Ggap. You can see the shovels and a truck in the background in this photo, taken in January 2000.
