Lord Brassey Mine Trip

It is hard to believe but Lord Brassey Mine is a world-famous mineral locality.  This former nickel mine is the type locality for heazlewoodite and hellyerite, and the source of many rare minerals, including awaruite, dypingite, retgersite, reevesite, theophrastite and several new, unnamed minerals.  I have absolutely no idea what any of that is but...

Upper Reaches of the Black River

Today we went out in search of Spion Kop mine and some old machinery out the back of Mawbanna and had absolutely no luck finding either but still found some interesting spots.   So on the way to looking for Spion Kop mine (which turned out was nowhere near the actual location) we came across a tree in a rather scary...

Farquhar’s Road Trip

After a horrid couple of weeks caused by incompetent upper management whom of which have decided to close the factory I and many others work at for literally no reason, it was time to get back to some sort of normality and what not better way to do that than to venture out into some...

The Launie Trip

After a very busy month or so of cleaning up after this so we can get ready to build it was time to get away for the weekend.  Although we had some great help from Todd Poke (without it we would still be going next summer) it was starting to drag out and feel never-ending,... Continue Reading →
