East Lachlan Field Workshop-Presenters Dick Glen, Max Rangott and in thte field

East Lachlan Field Workshop, NSW, Australia  -   After their arrival in Sydney at 6:35 am on the overnight flight from Denpasar in Indonesia, the group had transferred to the Sydney Airport Holiday Inn for breakfast. They had then assembled in the hotel function room for the first presentation of the East Lachlan Field Workshop which marked the beginning of the Australian segment of the tour.
Top left: This began with Dick Glen of the NSW Department of Mineral Resources providing an expert presentation on the tectonic and geologic setting of the fold belt and Macquarie Arc, which began at 8:40 am and was completed in time to catch the 11:05 am shuttle bus to the terminal for the Noon flight to Orange.   Orange is ~200 km west of Sydney, within the Macquarie Arc, and the nearest city to the major Cadia porphyry gold-copper deposit that was to be visited next day.
