Credited with the discovery of Bauxite in Jamaica

"The commencement of this new and major industry followed a successful exploration and development programme which resulted largely from the keen perception and perseverance of two men. First, Mr. R.F. Innes observed that some of the cattle lands on the St. Ann plateau were potential sources of aluminium ore, and then Sir Alfred DaCosta persisted in attempts to interest aluminium companies in undertaking exploration work here".
