- Upcoming Excursion and Lecture -

Excursion
Copper and diprotodons of Burra
Friday 21st to Sunday 23rd June

This is an advanced notice of an excursion to the Mid-north area on Friday 21st to Sunday, 23rd June. We realise some people might be working on the Friday, so there is the option of joining the excursion on the Saturday at Burra.
The plan is to travel to Burra via Pt Wakefield, Balaklava and Clare, looking at areas of geological interest along the way. Saturday will be visiting at locations around the Burra region. Sunday will focus on the mining history of the town.

Lecture
“Top shelf sedimentary structures” by Dr Nick Lemon

Thursday 4th July 2024     Time: 7:00 pm.
    Identifying sedimentary structures is one of the best ways to determine the depositional environment for sedimentary rocks. It is a particularly useful approach for Proterozoic (more than 540 million years old) sediments where there are limited fossils to help with the interpretation. This talk focuses on shallow marine structures, including wave, tidal and storm generated features and textures, illustrated with outcrop examples from the Flinders Ranges and modern analogues.
