CWEDG Meeting in Parkes - Upon returning to Parkes from Cowal in the early evening, the group changed and walked up to the nearby Railway Hotel. In the upstairs meeting room, two of the group participants delivered 30 to 40 minute presentations to the Central Western Exploration Group (CWEDG) on deposits with which they were conversant. The audience comprised near 30 geologists working in the area, coming from as far afield as West Wyalong and Orange, 1 to 2 hours drive away. The meeting was preceded by drinks and hors d'oeuvres and followed by an informal dinner, allowed the group an opportunity to network and discuss the geology and other deposits of the area with other geologists.
