Northern NSW : Winter 2012 redo
Bits for safety and community Spare change In Winter 2009, we reported in Rescue about a company that was producing a state- of-the-art drill bit that was revolutionizing the mining industry and supporting the work of the Service. The Angel Bits and the Tell Tail Reamer are produced by Beresfield based Quarry Mining and are part of the company's hard wearing drilling products used for roof support in mines. Both these bits minimize the risk of entanglement in wire mesh and are safer than other bits available. The company has become a preferred provider in the mining, construction and tunneling industries in Australia and exports into Asia, South America and New Zealand. For every Angel Bit and Tell Tail Reamer sold, Quarry Mining donates 20 cents to the Rescue Helicopter -- which equates to $25,000. Spare change and donations from the people of Vacy have raised $8,248.90. Grahame Gunther from The Farmers Hotel said that the money was collected through the Rescue Helicopter's money tins, donations and loose change from his bar at the end of the night. Grahame, his wife Sue and staff Jake, Bec and Donna and their very generous patrons have been long time supporters of the Dungog Support Group.
