Master of the Spreadsheet

Ooppss.. I forgot my sunnies!

Ooppss.. I forgot my sunnies!

It's been a pleasure working with you. We will definitely miss your Canadian accent at OB25, but think you may miss the Snickers fridge more!

Thank you for being a great Superintendent and at the same time a friend to all of us.

We wish you the best in your new role as Mine Manager Whaleback.

Hi Richard,
I've never got around to asking (mainly because I thought you would have heard it a million times before) about your namesake. Turn again Dick Whittington. Nah, Whaleback Production can be really good, there are lots of interesting people on the crews and some louts, it takes all sorts. Have a great time up there.

Good Luck with your move up to Whaleback. It has been great working with you and learning from you. I will miss not being able to share ideas to get me back on track but I will be calling if things get too tough.

No Malia at Whaleback.....but you do have Legonella
by: Doug

Hi Richard,
Best of luck mate - don't drink the water (legonella)or go into the pit (H2SO4 and rock wallabies). I am sure it will be fine - it cannot be as bad as South Africa.....can it??
