  “Mineral Collecting in Australia “


by Ted Johnson


The speaker is mineral dealer Ted Johnson, one of our regular dealers at our annual show.   Australia is a paradise for mineral collectors. Hundreds of mines dot the countryside.  The talk will cover visits to a number of localities.  Among these are the famous lead-zinc deposits of Broken Hill, the gold mines of Victoria, and the Red Lead Mine at Dundas, Tasmania. The last one is the major locality for the rare lead mineral crocoite.

The colorful mineral crocoite is found in Tasmania.  Speaker Ted Johnson will give a tour of  the Red Lead Mine in which it is found.
Our 2017 meeting dates are  April 18, May 9, June13, July 11, Sept. 19, Oct. 10, Nov.14, Dec.16.
