The Geology group ventured out on a field trip last Monday to explore the newer volcanics of the Western Plains.
Taking in volcanic cones around Sunbury, Basalt deposits at Anthony’s Cutting, Scoria deposits at Mt Fitzgerald, Trentham Falls, Blackwood Mineral Springs and the Bacchus marsh Council Trench.
A cheeky visitor joined them for lunch as can be seen in one of the photos.
The highlight for the leader Peter was the discovery of a large Quartz dyke in a fault line at Blackwood. A frisson of excitement ran through the group when sparkling golden coloured flecks were found in the quartz. Hopes were dashed when it was found to be Pyrites.
