SpecimensGeoscience Australia Collections

Please read the tutorial before commencing this expedition.

Geoscience Australia and its predecessor organisations, such as the Bureau of Mineral Resources (BMR), have acquired a large number of geological samples over many decades.  Some of these samples date back to the very early part of the 20th century and stem from all four corners of the globe.  The collection and submission of these samples for subsequent analysis and study was registered using BMR sample submission forms that are now being digitised.
