I would like to thank the many readers that offered information, advice and help.  Keep it coming!


I was also reminded that it is Ramadan month so easy fast to our Muslim readers.  


Many thanks

My prime site is in Southern Tanzania but I suspect
Mozambique would have similar problem(?), I hear Sri
Lanka, Maldives, Indonesia and the Philippines have
different forms of this practice.

Additionally (being greedy) if anyone has any
satellite or airborne images relevant to effected
areas - I would be much indebted.  

If anyone out there has valuable information on either
subjects, could you please make contact to me
through this list or directly at
thecoralminingproject at yahoo.com Many thanks for your
