The Allard Collection

Welcome to the Allard Collection

Welcome to the Gilles O. Allard Economic Geology collection, part of the University of Georgia Museum of Natural History holdings. The Allard Collection was donated to the museum in 1992 by Gilles Allard, and curation has been ongoing since then. The collection contains sample suites from over 1100 mines on six continents, including many world-class systems. As pointed out by Peter Laznicka in the April 2004 SEG Newsletter, literally thousands of world-class mineral deposits are now inaccessible, such that the only remaining samples from these systems are those which have been collected and curated by those of us who have visited these mines.
