As for your question Montana Smith has already answered that.
Unfortunately, he didn't. (No offense to Montana Smiffy.) Extra details in the novel don't always match up with what is seen in the film. I'm wondering if maybe the plank was taken from inside the mines since Indy & Co. had to go back there in order to free the children before returning to the main chamber for their escape.

I can see where you fixed the photo. The white blobs that run down vertically on the right side of the picture (in the proper, flipped version above) just to the left of the top torch down to the break in the plank.

Not as much as some other people who like to hang out at The Raven.
