Hans Ohff emailed from Adelaide:

I've just come across this blog. As the Project Manager for EGLO Engineering, I was responsible for the underground piping and mechanical installations (Jan 1971 to mid 1972) at the Panguna mine site.

Marianne, my wife, and I have fond memories of the project that determined my career in the engineering & construction, and naval (submarine) shipbuilding industry.

I’ll jot down some of the memorable Bougainville episodes over Christmas.
