Feature Expedition

Bureau of Mineral Resources Sample Submission Forms 28 - Old Format

SpecimensGeoscience Australia Collections

Please read the Tutorial before commencing this expedition.

Geoscience Australia and its predecessor organisations, such as the Bureau of Mineral Resources (BMR), have acquired a large number of geological samples over many decades.  Some of these samples date back to the very early part of the 20th century and stem from all four corners of the globe.  The collection and submission of these samples for subsequent analysis and study was registered using BMR sample submission forms that are now being digitised.Please note that the Submission Forms for this expedition contain a second page of handwritten text. This should be entered into the "Description (i.e. 2nd or subsequent pages)" section at the bottom of the "Details" screen.
