This month, PESA QLD is delighted to bring you a presentation from Mr Henk van Paridon.
Henk is well-known in the QLD patch, and Henk’s presentations are normally well-attended and members are always quite entertained. There is little doubt that this upcoming presentation will be any different!

The Annual General Meeting (AGM) for the PESA QLD Branch will be hosted prior to the commencement of the Technical Lunch.  Members are encouraged to attend and have their say with the PESA QLD committee.  There is no cost to attend the AGM, however those who are interested to attend but not partake in lunch are encouraged to register their seat by signing up for a “talk only” ticket in the options below.  This helps us gauge numbers and provide appropriate seating arrangements.  Please find below the Requisite AGM governance documents for distribution to members ahead of the AGM.

Presentation Abstract:

In the summer 1901-02 Professor J W Gregory of the University of Melbourne set out on an epic geological adventure with a group of students from the University of Melbourne to the Dead Heart of Australia. A train trip to Hergott was followed by a camel trip to Lake Eyre. In conditions ”hot enough to make a crowbar sweat” the group went in search of fossil bones.
The talk focuses on his Lake Eyre expedition and introduces the extraordinary achievements of Gregory who wrote over 20 books and published 300 papers on all manner of geological topics. The copyright on these books has long ago expired and they have been carefully scanned and are available for downloading on the web.
