This years schedule has me running full tilt through July. We've picked up some new jobs this year at another paper mill, the phosphate mine and the acid plant. Efforts are being made by the Powers that Be to secure a maintenance contract with CE Minerals. That would bring home 9 kilns, 6 ball mills, for about 20 weeks of work/year for a crew of 5 to 20. I've been up there twice, they have been pleased with our work. I've had 4 days off in the last couple of months, so the money is good. Rather than pay off this place, I'm helping my sister buy a house. I can think of no better investment.
