Hotspots for mineral diversity in Western Australia
Get ready for a whistle-stop tour of mineral diversity hotspots in Western Australia.
From Whim Creek to Widgiemooltha, we’ll examine mineral deposits where the action of water and our oxygen-rich atmosphere has produced a colourful range of new and rare minerals.
Peter is Curator of Minerals and the editor of the Australian Journal of Mineralogy.
He investigates kimberlites, lamproites, carbonatites and associated alkaline igneous rocks from the Earth’s mantle, along with secondary minerals from the oxidized zone of Western Australian mineral deposits.
