slices off it

Georgetown, Australia (iron) Found in 1988 RARE IIICD iron, now regrouped
as IAB-ung. This meteorite was
analyzed by Choi et al. (1995) and subsequently listed in the Catalog of
Meteorites as an anomalous IIICD iron
with silicate inclusions (it has fantastic troilite). It was later
analyzedby Wasson who classified it as a ?solo iron
related to IAB.? The name ?Georgetown (iron)? is now recognized as official
by the Meteorite Nomenclature
Committee. J. T. Wasson ) reports that Georgetown (iron) was found an
unknown distance from Georgetown,
Queensland, Australia, by a gold prospector with a metal detector.

Gujba Yobe, Nigeria Fell 1984 April 3, 18:30 local time Class:
Bencubbin-like meteorite. A conical meteorite fell
in a corn field near the village of Bogga Dingare after a bright fireball
was witnessed moving west to east and an
explosion was heard. The local people hammered the meteorite into many
pieces, and most of the material was
dispersed. The original mass is unknown, although secondhand reports
indicate that it had a volume of ~20 000
cm3 and thus a mass of - 100 kg. Material that almost certainly came from
this fall has been sold in the last few
years elsewhere in Nigeria, with claims that the specimens were new finds.
