Strange that there isn't prohibitive signage - private mine haul roads require 
a plethora of inductions, permissions, sign ins and often drug testing.

If anyone finds themselves in such surrounding it would be very wise to back 
track very quickly.

It  is not unusual for mine company leases to render what were previously pubic 
roads as off limits for the general public.

Most alarming of all is the lack of visibility that large mining machinery has 
of light vehicles, hence the requirement of flashing lights and UHF radio 
communications to ensure other vehicles are aware of your presence - such 
places are very dangerous for the uninitiated.
