An update on some of the South Australian locations.

Davidite is found at Radium Hill and other locations throughout the Olary District. On Plumbago Station there are two locations where crystals of Davidite can be found - Billeroo and Mount Victoria. Also on Plumbago Station is Absite (Thorian Brannerite) at Crocker Well and Samarskite can be found near Mount Victoria.

Radium Hill is no longer able to be visited, only members of the Radium Hill Historical Society have permission and this is restricted. Plumbago Station can be visited via special arrangement with the Pastoral Company who own it.

The other location for uranium minerals is Arkaroola - Mount Gee. Torbernite is found at the Number 6 Workings. Fossicking is not allowed on Arkaroola any more, however if the samples are for scientific research there may be a chance to collect a few small pieces. Access to the workings is via a 6km hike in from Echo Camp.
Cheers, from my little piece of the Australian Outback...
