I say things on Twitter


The real meaning of "P.E.A."

In the mining world, the term PEA (English pron "pee ee ay", not as per the leguminous vegetable) is often used to describe a specific document related to a mine project at a certain stage in its development. But what does it really mean? This question came up yesterday morning, was bandied about in the inbox of your humble scribe by a few reprobates known to him, then made its way to Twitter (Spanish pron: "tuiteh") for further thoughts and polish. 

As a result, several options were discovered. Feel free to choose your own fave, esteemed reader.
