Australia and New Zealand Micromineral News

In April 2011, a meeting of people interested in microminerals at the Bathurst Gemboree, with representatives from the Australian states and New Zealand, discussed the desire for a newsletter on Australian microminerals. It was proposed to have a regular newsletter to circulate to people interested in microminerals. A subsequent meeting held during the Mineralogical Societies Seminar in Melbourne in June 2011 re-affirmed this interest.

This resulted in the genesis of the Australia and New Zealand Micromineral News. The intent is to publish issues quarterly. It will be available electronically (via pdf files at this site) and at no cost. Yes, that's right. FREE! As with many of these ventures, it will only succeed with contributions of articles. See inside issues for details on how you can participate.
