b. Luck Of The Draw, shortly before Medusa's Children
c. Gold nuggets
d. Angular rocks, in a walking-sized breakdown passage
e. Pictures attached
f. Roughly 326105,209730 at about 96 metres below the surface. No access restrictions.

The whole of this area of the passage has incredible calcite formations, including whitewashed boulders and whitewashed gypsum crystals. The origin of these is not fully understood, and cryogenic process may be involved.
