DATE: Thursday 25th May 2000 - 5.30pm for 6pm VENUE: 1st Floor, Rugby Club, Rugby (Crane) Place, Sydney SPEAKER: Lindsay Newnham TOPIC: "Avebury Nickel Deposit - Tasmania" At Avebury on Tasmania's West Coast, Allegiance Mining* has discovered what it believes to be a new type of nickel deposit where the sole sulphide mineral present is coarse grained pentlandite. The potential exists for several million tonnes of 1 1/2 percent nickel over the 300 metres so far intensively drilled. Geological, geophysical and geochemical mapping infers considerable extensions to be present. Prior to becoming a consultant in 1990, Lindsay Newnham was Exploration Manager for RGC. Over the past 35 years, Lindsay has played a major role in discoveries such as Henty Gold (Tas.), Lucky Draw (NSW) as well as in the extension of life for Mt. Lyell. Recently Lindsay was Project Manager at Beaconsfield, and at the development and construction of the Anchor (Sn) Mine, Tasmania. * See "Trial Harbour Nickel Project" and "Announcements"
