Err...here's sharing some pictures taken...
whilst Orchi works in the mines...

Bauxite or AI(OH)3 is most abundant mineral on Earth...
n it is primarily the raw source of Aluminium metal...

Finding Bauxite isn't difficult...
as it can be easily found on considerably shallow soil...
in countries close to the Equator...

On the most recent working trip to the Bauxite mines...
located remotely in the islands of Riau/Indonesia...
Orchi was wearing this ME Military 1680...

After many hours of boat rides in rough sea n weather...
Orchi gets behind the wheel of this pickup for a 2 hour rough journey to the remote mines...

This would be when the going really gets tough...
(Psssssst...btw Buddy Arthur...
this 4x4 pickup has a 3 litre 200hp 352Nm torque...
16 Valves Double Overhead Cams...
commonrail Diesel injection variable geometry turbocharged intercooler engine...
instead of using Push-Rod truck engine...
Something the US automaker could only dream of these days...LOL!)

Guess who's the bloke operating a CAT D7 in middle of night...
bulldozing to clear a passage for a convoy of dump trucks...
laden with Bauxite...?

This would be best mosquitoes repellent...
the Kretek cigarette that is...LOL!

Thanks for watching...

Best regards
Orchi.
