The Adelaide Mine, Dundas, Tasmania, is famous for its world’s best crocoite. Adam Wright and his partners have been operating it for mineral specimen removal for a number of years and have had significant finds in recent years. In particular, the 2010 Pocket, and more recently, the Red River Pocket. The latter was being worked when I last visited the mine in November 2012.

Well-known US-based mineral specimen miner and mineral dealer, John Cornish, has visited the mine on a couple of occasions to help with the tricky extraction of crocoite specimens. The photos below are of the mine, including a look into the Red River Pocket in situ.
