Winch, Workwear, Weird Object

We’ve met Mr Meardon before at various dates in June 1906. He was owner/manager of Bunmahon/Bonmahon Copper Mines in Co. Waterford, and looks particularly impressive here with his rolled up plans and thoughtful expression – dreaming of establishing diamond mines in far-off places perhaps…
A Mr Jackson also appears in this photograph, presumably the chap in the full sou’wester gear? Anyway, I liked this one for the winch, the early 20th century workwear, and the weird object in the hand of the chap in the thigh-high rubber galoshes. Anyone any ideas as to what it is?
