Marbles from Alpine area have been widely employed to build and decorate masterpieces and buildings which often represent the cultural heritage of an area (statuary, historic buildings and sculptures). Candoglia marble, object of the present research, is one of the most famous and appreciated marbles from Alpine area; it has been quarried since Roman times in the Verbano-Cusio-Ossola (VCO; Piemonte—NW Italy) extractive area. Candoglia Marble outcrops are present as lenses within the high-grade p...

AbstractSouth Australia has the greatest utilisation of heritage or building stone in Australia because of its lack of timber resources. Consequently, natural stone was intensively used from the beginning of European colonisation. Building stones in South Australia, notable for their variety given the State’s diverse geology, can be challenging to designate as to their international importance. However, dimension stone in South Australia can also be designated as having national, regional, local...

s. For similar reasons the sessions dealing with Recent Advances in Exploration Geophysics attracted more than 70 papers. The rare interaction of Soviet and Australian geologists in these economic geology sessions would have been most interesting. Significant numbers of presentations concerned plate tectonics, which had gained acceptance over the previous decade. Precambrian geology and deep sea drilling also generated much interest and attracted numerous contributions. The largest audiences, ap...

This paper suggests Sydney sandstone as the first Global Heritage Stone Resource to be nominated from Australia. Sydney sandstone underlies much of the city of Sydney. It is also the most widely utilised dimension stone in the city. Its use in Sydney has extended over 200 years and it continues to be quarried today for Australian domestic use as well as for export. Existing documentation ranges from extensive technical assessment of the stone, heritage lists with abundant illustrations, as well ...
