Hi DiamondDoug, just wondering if you would be interested in allowing me to use this photo in a publication I am working on for NSW Geo Survey please? It's a map of the Bathurst area with an empahasis on the mining and geological history. Full credit would be given to you of course, and we'll send you a copy of the finished map. I can be contacted on or via Look forward to hearing from you, thanks John.

Hi John, No problem use what you want. I have done a little research with Larry Barron & Dr Ian Graham in the past they are good friends you might know them. Ian did a good paper on Blue Hill Quarry near Oberon the smoky quartz location and Larry does a lot on diamonds including Oberon.

Hi Doug, Found you on LinkedIn but couldn't find the Austen & Stoddart site. Yes, please send me the full image of the balancing rock pic above as I may be able to use that. This is from Evans Crown Nature Reserve near the Fish River, right? Also send me your details so I can send a copy of the finished map. Thanks, John
