June 6, 1977 AIRMAIL Mr. D. McColl Bureau of Mineral Resources P.O. Box 378 Canberra City, A.C.T., Australia 2601 Dear Don, Some years ago you loaned me a collection of 15 australites from Lake Disappointment (24*32'S, 125*13'E). Indetermined their densities and then returned them to you. I am now studying the variation in composition of australites at specific locations, by taking a small slice from each specimen, making a polished thin section, and analyzing it with the microprobe. If you still have the collection (or can obtain it) I would like to borrow the ones circled on the accompanying list for this purpose. With best regards. Sincerely yours, Brian Mason Curator Department of Mineral Sciences Enclosure BM/ks
I wasn't sure how to denote the latitude/longitude degree and minute/second marks.
