Echoing in an adit? (No replies)

3 months ago

I found a lost adit on a claim I have here outside of Phoenix.  It needs a considerable amount of rehab work to say the least.  No assays done on it yet either.

One thing that has caught my attention was how there are variations in echo within an adit, including this one. In this particular adit, it seems to occur where the hanging and foot wall are both fairly fractured on the surface. 

Is that echoing telling me that its an area that needs extensive timbering/lagging, scaling, or both?  Judging by the surface appearance starting around 7:03 in the video, the ribs could really stand to be lagged there under a drift set.
