Between the stones in the wall west of S2 and S3 of G 5230 S, other fragments of statuettes (red granite).
Railroad line one has been brought, by a turn-table, along the back of G 5230 W, and is now used to attack the deep deposit of sand in the angle between G 5110 and G 5230. The sand is being shoveled into the carts - the most economical process at our disposal.
