Herewith a list of topics covered in the two days of presentations, with a third day available for micro-mount examination of specimens and a swap and sell.
This will be augmented with four days of field trips and collecting at many different sites, some rarely visited. A very wide range of mineral specimens are potentially available.
These trips have already been posted on line, for all seminar participants.
One day has been set aside for a visit to the Annual Exhibition of the Adelaide Gem and Mineral Club (South Australia’s largest buying opportunity with good displays of minerals)
A seven day trip to the Olary Province and Broken Hill, with again very interesting collecting opportunities, in locations rarely available, will conclude the programme for the 40th Mineralogical Seminar.
