What made Tasmania? The Centenary Lecture
Webinar Speaker:
Mr Ralph Bottrill
Mineralogist at Mineral Resources Tasmania (MRT);
Honorary Associate, School of Natural Sciences, University of Tasmania; Associate Curator of Minerals with the Tasmanian Museum and the Queen Victoria Museum

The geology of Tasmania is very ancient, complex, highly mineralised and controversial.
Most of Tasmania's west was poorly understood, until in recent decades the mapping, dating and information compilation coordinated by the Tasmanian Geological Survey (MRT) has enabled us to get much greater understanding, and produce detailed maps of most of it, despite the largely difficult terrain and complexity.
