Abstract

This study briefly describes two wooden mineral cases that were found at the Bendigo campus of La Trobe University and the Central Deborah mine, Bendigo. It outlines their contents and provenances, traces the contributions to mineralogy of the original distributors of the boxes, and notes some aspects of late 19th century gold mining in Australia, and Bendigo in particular.
