Of course she has to be pretty.
"Unless a pretty student and a plant operator stop a greedy platinum miner from injecting hazardous wastes deep into the Earth, their town will explode in a fiery blast, triggering earthquakes, volcanoes, fires, and floods."
Now the rest of this query is long, but it's soooooooooo worth it.
In his younger years, David Seaberry extracted usable metals from ore at the old metals recovery plant in Oakley, Tennessee. The plant was shuttered 30 years ago when the town was rocked by a deadly series of earthquakes, volcanoes, fires, and floods. The townspeople blamed the loss of life on the previous mining company, and they never want to see the plant reopen. But when it's discovered that the earthquakes have opened a cavern full of the precious metal platinum, Logan Wesley Forbes buys and renovates the plant, plying the public with assurances he'll protect public safety.
Pretty young college student Lynn Whitaker comes to Oakley to research the 1974 incident. David Seaberry explains how the former owner injected mining waste by-products deep into the earth. Consulting with Lynn's professor, they learn the earth is very fragile in the area due to an earthquake that occurred in the early 1800's. Given present geological conditions, if Forbes has secretly resumed injecting mining wastes deep into the Earth, the town is in imminent danger of exploding into oblivion, with disastrous environmental implications for the entire planet. Lynn and David join forces to find a way inside the facility and prevent an environmental holocaust.
