A group from the Bangor Acidophile Research Team (BART), made up of Carmen Falagan, Ana Araujo, Eva Pakostova, Rose Barata Holanda and Sarah Smith had already booked to go and were kind enough to let her, Megan Roberto and Angie Murray (of the University of Birmingham) join them.
Amanda said " Me and Megan - who is married to Newmont's Frank Roberto, who has agreed to give a keynote at Biohydrometallurgy '16 - are seasoned divers (ahem!) and so dived together. Unfortunately Carmen, who was to join us, had a problem with her ear and could not dive. The others were all first time divers and were taken down in another two groups".
