Classification: Eucrite-mmict
Time/Place: FALL 1960 in Australia
Mass: 330kg

Circumstances of fall: Station workers, F. Vicenti and F. Quadrio, observed a fireball while opening a gate in the boundary fence on the Millbillillie – Jundee track. An object “with sparks coming off it” fell into a spinifex plain to their north. No search was initiated, but D. Vicenti and M. Finch found two stones in this plain in 1970 and 1971. Aboriginals have since found others. The largest stone (20 kg) and one smaller one (565 g) are in the Western Australian Museum.
