This very recent image shows 3 geologists in an excavated pit at Mulga Rock, east of Kalgoorlie, West Australia.
They are, Professor Brad Pillans (left) of the Research School of Earth Sciences, Australian National University, Canberra and a former colleague of Professor John Gamble (Geology, School of BEES, UCC), when both were at Victoria University of Wellington, New Zealand.
Dr Paul Morris (right), Chief Geochemist with the West Australian Geological Survey was a PhD student of John Gambleâ€™s in Wellington.
In the centre is Ms Emer Oâ€™Connor, BSc Hons (Geology, UCC, 2008), now working as an exploration geologist for Energy and Minerals Australia on the Mulga Rock prospecting licence area.
How did these 3 come to be together on the same outcrop??
