Some Notes on the White Cliffs Opal Fields. [Contained in] Transactions of the Australasian Institute of Mining Engineers. Volume 2. Account of the Ballarat Session, held March, 1894

[Broken Hill], AIME (printed in Adelaide by Sands & McDougall), 1894.

Octavo, pages 70-80 plus a page of illustrations (in [viii], 139, [1] pages plus 6 pages of illustrations, 3 of them folding).

Original cloth lightly worn and bumped at the extremities, with the front board a little creased; rear flyleaf creased; a very good copy (internally excellent).

The annual report records that dues were received from 195 members, which suggests the print run of this volume is not much more than that number. Other articles of interest include three on gold fields, and the lengthy presidential address by James Stirling, on the mineral wealth of Victoria. Provenance: the front flyleaf carries the ownership signature of Robert Lockhart Jack (1878-1964), hydrologist (then Assistant Government Geologist) for South Australia, and later chief geologist of the Broken Hill Pty. Ltd., and son of Robert Logan Jack (1845-1921), geologist and explorer.
