Biographies

Allan Davidson was a pioneering geologist who helped develop goldmining in Australia. He discovered that ore from the Kalgoorlie area, which was treated as waste, actually contained sizable amounts of useable gold. This led to the development of telluride processing in the Western Australian goldfields. Davidson discovered many other rich goldbearing belts across Australia and delivered some of his findings in the South Australian Parliamentary paper of 1905 , which has since been republished by the Friends of the State Library of South Australia (2005).

The death occurred in London on Tuesday night from heart failure of Mr. Allan Arthur Davidson, a graduate of the Adelaide School of Mines, who was widely known as a mining engineer and explorer.
