Jamaican Caving Notes
Cane Patch Sink
April 2, 2005
Team: Conolley, Slack.
Notes: IC Conolley
18 18 14.8, 77 34 21.8; Datum: OGB-C [Position does not plot in right locale]
Stagnant water present. Possibly a choked sink
18 17 54.8, 77 34 44.4; Datum: OGB-C
Deep pool found downstream of above position travelling West
Notes: E Slack
Ivor and I followed a stream, past a farm, to point where it looked like the water sunk. There was no opening, nor really even a depression in the ground. Ivor identified wild cane growing in the immediate vicinity. The farmer may know more, but he was not there when we were.
[Many sinks in the district were mud-choked during our visit as a result of siltation during Hurricane Ivan. In the listed position, Conolley and Slack found two sites, neither of which permitted entry. This site may be currently lost. Stewart]
