I worked on Bougainville March 1968 to March 1969. Employed by CRAE looked after the coreshed collecting Drill core from the numerous diamond drills on the site in the days before the mining commenced. Witnessed the hydraulicing trials and worked in the tunnels occasionally sampling etc and also worked in the pilot plant. Worked anywhere they wanted someone, had a great 12 months. I have a good few photos but not with me I will try and sort some out when I next head south my place near Adelaide.
