Howdy All,
I'm just a crazy collector from the land down under!
And a student of Geology at University.
Member of the Mineralogical Society of South Australia, Adelaide Gem and Mineral Club and Murraylands Gem and Mineral Club. Formally holding committee positions with all these groups.

I have a major interest in historic mines and mineral locations of South Australia.
I'm slowly trying to update the South Australian locality's on here and add new ones.

My goal is to have all those that actually produced specimens on here, while leaving out all of the
'we were only looking out back to see if there was something there' type of listings.
Not as easy as it might seem, the S.A. government, has at times given out 'incentives' to those who might find new mineral wealth here. So there are many listings in the Mines Records that are no more than a little prospect at the back of a property, purely to gain money from the government of the day!
Still there are many more that are the real thing!

If you have questions about SA don't hesitate to ask, if I don't have the answer, I probably know someone who does!
