Hi All,
           Operation High and Low took place in the early Sixties, about '63 or '64. The article appeared in the both Windhoek Advertiser and the Kimberley-based Diamond Fields Advertiser.
Was amused by a comment from the GM at the time, Stan Devlin, who - on reading the piece -
was heard to say: "Hell, is that what we were doing? I thought they were just spending money."
Regards,
Bob.

Hi Leon,
Picture shows the Benoto Drill, I know it was engaged in a prospecting programme in the area South of 32G. Martin Gerber and Gordon Brown would be able to shed more light this.
