|Mineralogical Society of Queensland Inc.
you to the GCBF:
The Queensland Government's Gambling Community Benefit Fund provided
$8,565 to the Mineralogical Society of Queensland Inc. for the purchase
of a laptop, computer projector and photomicrographic equipment.
The society currently has over
70 members and is based in Brisbane, Queensland. Its members predominately
come from South-East Queensland, but we have quite a few members from
northern New South Wales.
We meet on a Wednesday
and also have micro meetings some Saturdays of every month
(excepting December) in the Mt Gravatt Lapidary Society clubrooms located
at 1873 Logan Road Mt Gravatt (opposite Macdonalds) in Brisbane. Check the
calendar for day and start times of meeting.
Most meetings are well attended, and
have stereo microscopes available for mineral viewing and identification. Guest speakers
frequently attend, and a 'Mineral of the Month' session enables members to become better
acquainted with various mineral species.
We have a keen micro
mineral group ('Micromob') who also meet regularly to view and discuss
micro minerals. (see calendar for details)
Field trips are held during the
year, with the venue being published in our newsletter. The 'Australian
Mineral Collector' Internet site has been sponsored for the past 19 years,
and aims to make the hobby more educational and accessible.
