Mike is the second-youngest in the family. He's been working on the mine full-time since the age of 13, and he's the best when it comes to operating massive machinery. If something on the mine needs shifting Mike is the one to do it - whether it be in a dozer, Oshkosh or a 40-ton crane.

Mike is also a master on the water and is a fully qualified skipper. When he's not working, he enjoys taking part in medieval combat tournaments.
