    The road leading from route 13 to the mine was in bad shape so construction crew were tasked to fix it, gotta get those copper trucks out















    This is the old bridge style



    Dont want to loose any copper on a shitty road





    Out goes the copper convoy

    Good to see the ladies earning their keep. Presumably same deal as the men?

    The road building, would the mine be responsible for the financing and construction or the Lao authorities?

    The mine resealed and widened the road to the mine ( called Route 28A) and added some bridges at there expense , we also found a lot of UXO while doing that. Route 13 from the viet border to savannakhet is always in shocking condition, japs have financed the road works on that section twice now in the last 10 years. We would be waiting a long time for the Lao govt to finance it>

    Very informative post. Can you tell me of any mining operations still active in Laos and cambodia, I am retired living in Thailand . I have over thirty yrs experience in mining and aggregate industries. Just wondering if i could put some of my talents to use in some sort of consultancy role.
    James.

    Hi James. MMG and PHU BIA are the largest miners here . Both are winding down but both tend to use consultants and contractors instead of direct hires. So its possible. Jump on linkedin and search both those companies. Then Click Follow. That will.bring up current vacancies. I don't know any HR people in either company otherwise I would flick you an email. Check out there websites as well

    Thanks for this story. I really enjoyed reading it. And I didn't know what a big world a mining site is.

    Hi beerlaodrinker, I was at Sepon for 7 years in Resource and Mine Geology (Dave). I am writing a paper on Sediment-Hosted Gold in Lao and AU potential in general. Can I ask where the photos of the excavator and grizzly sluice was at? Also the underground mine with the rail bogies, plus the panning photo. Might I use them in my paper? I am in Bangkok atm. Hope to here from you soon as the paper is due shortly.
    PS. Sepon was the best time in my life. Surreal really. Cheers to having amazing adventures in the future.
