Will be passing through the Meekatharra area in mid to late June and are a very amature rock/mineral hound. I would appreciate some guidance as to where to start looking in this area.

Tol, obviously you have never been there b4 so the best advice I can give, as I did spend 3 months there in 2006, is go a bit further north east, as Meeka is a place you only go because your getting paid heaps to be there & she's getting paid to keep you LOL

Stay well outa town or risk loosing everything that's not padlocked :-((

Rocks everywhere up that way as mainey says keep well out.
Dont stray on any leases unless you let the holders know.

After your trip let me know how you got on, I will be heading that way myself in about a years time as I move around the block and would love to spend some time looking for some cabinet specimens.

Although I won't be spending a great deal of time in the area I will take the opportunity to have a fossick or two. Will let you know how I get on about October.

Cheers, Tol.
