Geological Specimen Sets for Year 11 & 12 Science Students
Got Any Spare Geological Specimens???

As part of ongoing programs with secondary schools and universities, The Geological Society of Australia (Queensland Branch) are currently assembling sets of rock and mineral specimens for Year 11&12 science classes.

Many of the schools in south-east Queensland have found it difficult to obtain specimen sets which adequately cover the range of the various rocks and minerals and associated geological environments included in the school curriculum.


As part of ongoing programs with secondary schools and universities, The Geological Society of Australia (Queensland Branch) are currently assembling sets of rock and mineral specimens for Year 11&12 science classes.

Many of the schools in south-east Queensland have found it difficult to obtain specimen sets which adequately cover the range of the various rocks and minerals and associated geological environments included in the school curriculum.

This is a significant community service project which aims to deliver complete, integrated sets at a nominal cost to schools, with the bulk of the costs being met by the GSA. The sets are being assembled by GSA volunteers with rock and mineral specimen materials donated by the Geological Survey of Queensland (Dept. of Minerals and Energy) and a number of industry mining and exploration companies.

GDD have undertaken a key role in this project in managing the collection, preparation and assembly of the specimen sets, in to provision of equipment and storage facilities.

If you can provide specimen materials for the project, please call or email…..
