Abstract

While I was in Broken Hill, New South Wales, during November, 1924, Dr. W. Macgillivray, whose kind hospitality I was at the time enjoying, showed me two specimens which have since proved to be parts of a meteoric stone. Both these specimens he very generously presented to the Museum, and supplied the following information in regard to their history. "The meteorite was found by Mr. Jorgen Thue-Johnsen, a surveyor of the Public Works Department, when surveying a line on Elsinora Station about 10 miles south-east from Thurloo Downs Homestead, which is about forty-six miles north-west from Wanaaring Township on the Paroo River, New South Wales. It was the only stone in a sandy paddock and hence attracted attention. One of Johnsen's men broke it with a hammer, and the two pieces which he gave me."
