Welcome to the Planet Geologists website. This has been established to provide an opportunity for former geologists and others who have worked for John Fuller’s Planet Group of Exploration Companies to get together to share stories, photos, successes, what we have done before and after Planet and any other items of interest, both personal and professional. It is also a tribute to John Fuller who was a visionary in both the oil and minerals exploration fields.
Planet operated from the mid 1950s to the mid 1970s, ramping up to the “Group” in the mid 1960s. It was an exciting place to work with many opportunities for discovery, great people who included up to 40 geologists and geophysicists, and excellent support from our administration and operations staff, our own laboratory and top class local and international consultants.
This website is for everyone to enjoy, old Planet people as well as anyone else who is interested, so please contribute as well as reading – there is a myriad of Planet stories and experiences to share. Remember that not everyone was at Planet all of the time, and therefore your experiences may never be known to others unless you tell them, hopefully with some photos, and even reports or press cuttings.
Those wishing to contribute to this website can either send their contributions to the Webmaster, Andy Marosszeky firstname.lastname@example.org, or if you are a genuine old Planetarian, have Andy provide you with a password to access the site so that you can add your material yourself.
I look forward to following the development of this blog with great anticipation. There are already some interesting items included, but I know there is a lot more out there, so let’s see it for everyone to enjoy.
Graham Brown, former General Manager of the Planet Group
