About the Mineralogical Society of New South Wales

Cerussite - Elura deposit (Endeavor Mine), NSW

The Mineralogical Society of New South Wales ("Min Soc NSW") promotes knowledge and enjoyment of mineral science and mineral collecting. The Society was founded in 1975, and includes both professional and lay people interested in mineralogy. We hold monthly meetings, and also organise field trips. Along with other Australian State Mineralogical Societies, we participate in the publication of the Australian Journal of Mineralogy.


We meet on the first Friday of the eleven months February to December unless that Friday is before a long weekend or is itself a public holiday, in which case the meeting is put back until the second Friday. Meetings start at 7.30pm. Visitors are very welcome. See list of future meeting dates and topics below. Meetings are held in the clubrooms of the Parramatta and Holroyd Lapidary Club at 73 Fullagar Rd, Wentworthville - see map below.
