In 1969, when I bid farewell to work in field exploration, I knew I would miss the outdoors. I wasn’t sure if my love for geological mapping, and my penchant for using geophysical equipment to probe the earth for her riches, would be fulfilled. The truth was, I embarked on my new career in an underground mine with a major metal mining company seeking the opportunity to be at home with my family in the evenings and to have access to a university to complete my BSc in Geology.
