· NRGI will support countries in Latin America and Africa to secure the best terms for any extraction of such minerals. But we will also help countries avoid overhyped narratives about the potential of critical minerals, addressing information asymmetries between investors and governments and supporting countries to pool information and intelligence.
In addition to a potential for seismic hazards, this region is of great interest for its mineral resource potential and is the location for the Illinois-Kentucky fluorspar mineral district. Deposits in the mineral district are hosted in sedimentary rock with some of the mineralization presumed to be connected to …
This proposal arises from the request of SOPAC member countries, Solomon Islands and Vanuatu, and follows the [MR148 - Rodd]  recommendations of earlier SOPAC reports (1988 and 1989). These recognise the need t o acquire modern multi-channel seismic in order t o better define prospectivity and, hopefully, make these areas more attractive t o ...

· This study focuses on the effect of firing temperature on the physical properties of Same clay and Pugu kaolin for potential application in ceramic tiles. X-Ray diffractometer (XRD) is used to analyze the phases formed after firing. XRD result shows that quartz, sillimanite and cristobalite appears at temperature beyond 1200oC while mullite phase develops in Pugu kaolin.
· National economies of less industrialized countries including those in Africa have recognized the economic potential of kaolin (Ekosse, 1998), which is also referred to as white gold (Hill, 2000, Ekosse, 2001b, Ekosse, 2002). However, adequate investment and exploitation towards maximized profits have not been directed to this white gold in Africa.

The third potential site is Bangka, not too far from Jamali. Since Bangka Island is located on the Intra Plate, it is far from active volcanoes: the closest one is Mt. Lumut Balai in Lampung, ±303 km from Bangka. It therefore has a comparatively low seismic risk, and no potential tsunami hazard due to the shallow sea. The total

You need to ask yourself which companies you want to work for. If you work for a larger outfit you could end up with a pick of countries to work in. Can''t comment about mining, but O&G has seen a lot of seismic jobs bleed away in the last 6-7 years or so because of successive downturns, so there is generally a lot of slack capacity out there.
