Lost Wax Casting …….
Well what beautiful weather we have been experiencing in the Cairns region. We have only just started using the air conditioning units, due to the mild temperatures this year. Welcome to our new members. It’s great to see you using the facilities and having fun learning the skills.
Our Christmas Party Feast is on December 7th after the general meeting which will start one hour earlier at 11:00am. All members and friends are welcome.
It’s good to see the club a hive of activity with our new members learning to cut and polish cabochons, faceting or making silver jewellery.

Acceptance from New President, Michael Hardcastle, 2017 First and foremost I’d like to thank the outgoing President Bill Reece for his contribution of time and dedicated work effort over the past 20 years to make the club what it is today. Thank-you Bill. I am pleased to know that Bill is not leaving but stepping back to Vice-President.
I became a member of our club about 7 years ago because of my interest in fossicking.
