This brochure from 1969 – another from Derek Minter’s files – is a magnetic map of Church Stretton in Shropshire. It says it is a test area, so presumably the survey and the brochure were done to provide marketing material for the Geophysics Department.
Derek Minter contributed these photos taken during the Nigerian geophysical survey 1974/75, when the crews were based in Enugu, and the job specs and briefing notes. The photos feature Nigel Ridley-Thomas (glasses), Alex Copeland and an unknown Nigerian carrying a cast iron bath.
