Meekatharra From Gold Dust to Bull Dust

Meekatharra is an autobiographical account by veteran geologist Robert Pyper covering the period 1972-76 when the rising gold price revitalised the great goldfields of Western Australia after 35 years of inactivity.

Those early explorers opened the vaults to vast wealth but there were many pitfalls on the way and the book introduces us to lost opportunities and a landscape as rich in eccentric prospectors as it was in gold .
