Wow, now if I could train them, I could replace the whole mining workforce. :roll:

Actually, there is a story that one of the best Tsavorite mines back in the 1970s was supposedly found when a colony the large East African "Siafu" ants (Army Ants) drilled through a deposit and created a bright green ant hill.

Sort of like the Ant-hilll garnets of Arizona.
