It doesn’t seem like anyone on the team has any excavation skills specifically – as mentioned the maintenance crew has some general handy skills such as building experience. However, even if there were skills within the team, it’s important to think about what would happen long term for this project (eg if that particular staff member was to leave). In my earlier reply to a question about skills held by the team in Dawul Wuru I believe I mentioned that they are interested in upskilling, so thinking about how you could do that is also of interest.
Please let me know if you have any further questions!
