FMF is a not commercial web page but for mineralogical magazines we can do an exception, so please go ahead and publish your announce in the "Mineralogical Literature" section, but please just referred to mineralogical magazines, nothing else. Thank you.

Ok, I'll try to write a message there. Grazie

PostPosted: May 22, 2013 12:13    Post subject: Presentation of new members - Tim Blackwood from Cohasset, Minnesota  

Hi everyone,

My name is Tim Blackwood and I'm from Cohasset, Minnesota (USA). I was born in 1972 and been collecting minerals for the past 25 to 30 years. I'm located about 35 miles from the Mesabi Iron Range, but have done little collecting there. There are scattered small iron mines closer, but most are off limits to collectors. My interests include thumbnail to miniature specimens from worldwide localities. I've been a follower of FMF for a while, but have only just become a member. I enjoy the discussions a lot and look forward to reading and learning even more.

Best wishes,
Tim
Cohasset, Minnesota, USA

Hi Don,

Thank you. I'll definitely be sharing photos of specimens from my collection. I'm only getting started as a mineral photographer. Sometimes the pictures turn out, somtimes not. But I keep trying. I've enjoyed seeing your photos, as well as those of other Forum members. There are many excellent specimens. : )

Best wishes,
Tim

Hello everyone,
I am a new member here and a somewhat newer collector. I collected fairly avidly as a young boy but haven't in many years. My main focus for my collection is currently on minerals but I would like to learn more about going out and harvesting my own samples rather than buying them. I am also a very avid coin collector and have been for many years. I am 25 years old and live in Michigan. I hope to be able to contribute as much as I take from this forum, thanks!

Hi Pierre and Riccardo,

My replies to your messages somehow came to be included in the same posting. Not sure how that happened. I'm still learning how to use the FMF features.

Best wishes,
Tim

PostPosted: Jun 06, 2013 08:07    Post subject: Presentation of new members - New member from 'Down Under'  

Hi everyone. My name is Barry Vincent and I've just joined up and have already contributed to several threads including an inquiry concerning Dana's Textbook of Mineralogy.
I'm an amateur Mineralogist and I"m also a member of the New South Wales Mineralogical Society. I often take part in field trips around the state with this group at times.
My other interests are musical performance and the teaching of music theory. (I play Recorder/Flute/ Oboe and Clarinet).
My mineralogical and petrographic collection is mainly of a 'study grade ' quality but do have a few higher grade specimens. Other than going out into the field collecting I also often purchase specimens from eBay as well as from gem and mineral shows that are organized throughout the state (NSW)

Hello Crocoite. No I will not be at the seminar in Sydney even though I only live 2 (3) hours train journey north between Newcastle and Maitland.

PostPosted: Jul 03, 2013 05:31    Post subject: Presentation of new members - Introduction of Bruce Stark from Dundas  

Greetings to my fellow friends of minerals.
My name is Bruce Stark, and am currently mining 2 crocoite leases in the Dundas mineral field of Tasmania.
I am mining at the Adelaide mine, and my own lease, the Platt mine. And to be clear, it's an exciting time around here right now. That's one of the reasons I have joined this forum.
My mineral interest started early. My Dad was a collector from his days of working at the Renison tin mine, just a rifle shot from my Platt lease. Some of the best times I had as a kid, was fossicking trips to the opal fields in NSW & QLD. I guess that is what led me to a working life of mineral exploration and mining in Tasmania for the last 24 years. That's a lot of walking and expert local knowledge folks!
So I guess I have a lot I can share. to those who are interested in the minerals that come from this odd anomaly on the western side of Mt. Dundas.
The other major point of me joining this forum, is to thank John Cornish for his tremendous story and pics of The River Find at the Adelaide mine. We've had John down here a couple of times now...sure was fun!
Cheers
Bruce
