PhotosMissing locality "Boogaldi" on

18th Nov 2019 21:52 UTCDr. Günter Grundmann Expert

May I ask the management to add the given locality "Boogaldi, New South Wales".
Please compare the given reference by H.H. Nininger (1977).

Many thanks for your efforts,

Dr. Günter Grundmann

The place is actually Bugaldie .. A BM typo ? or see below
Now added

And of course the location in fact could be on Boogardie Station which is a pastoral lease that operates as a sheep station in Western Australia - totally the other side of Australia some 4,000km distant.

This is more probable as being the location because the Dalgaranga meteorite crater is located on Boogardie Station.

Thanks Jolyon

I didn't have that reference.

So that does at least place it in NSW in Baradine county.

It is of interest that the name of Bugaldi was changed to Bugaldie (1 June 1924).

Not sure where they got the Boo spelling from but appears incorrect.

Many thanks Keith, and many thanks Jolyon for your quick response.

I just added the locality name.

Please compare the scan of the pages 78 - 79 out of the Nininger-Book I cited.
