The Johannesburg Geological Museum, Johannesburg, South Africa

The Johannesburg Geological Museum houses one of the largest geological collections in South Africa and dates back to 1895 only nine years after gold was discovered on the Witwatersrand in 1886. The collection is an amalgamation of two original collections, those of the Witwatersrand Chamber of Mines and the Geological Society of South Africa. Since its founding, the collection has also grown via private and corporate donations and purchasing of specimens.

Dr. Bruce Cairncross, a consulting editor of Rocks & Minerals, is chairman of the regional Geological Museum Association.
