A new book on the minerals of Broken Hill in western New South Wales, and the adjoining Olary districts in South Australia, is now available.
The Collector’s Guide to the Minerals of Broken Hill and Olary Districts has been published by Trevor Dart, a well-known Broken Hill-based mineral collector.
It is a 64 page full-colour publication and describes 85 minerals in detail. It also includes 11 very clear locality maps, and lots of other information.
Available as a printed paperback publication from print on demand company, Lulu, for only US$29.99.
I highly recommend it.
