Random Thursday afternoon post…
I’m reading this report on the geology and mineralization of a part of Indonesia where I have recently established a research project. It’s an interesting project and involves investigating several styles of mineralization. It also involves examining the environmental and social impact of mineral exploration. Genuinely interesting stuff!
The thing is, this report has lots of maps in it…And you know what’s on these maps? Islands. Islands that I know have some of the best diving on the planet. So reading this report, instead of my brain going “that’s important information about the formation of the mineral deposits“, I am instead thinking “I know what that dot on the map is! That little island there has a dive resort on it! Hmm…FIELDWORK!”
