IMA LIST OF MINERALS – AN INTERIM UPDATED LIST OF IMA-APPROVED MINERALS

A list of newly approved minerals is now available (as a pdf file) from the IMA-CNMNC website (http://pubsites.uws.edu.au/ima-cnmnc/). This interim list contains names and data for minerals which have been approved, discredited, redefined and renamed since the March 2009 listing currently on the IMA website, and for which names and data have been published. It is intended to update this interim list periodically while work continues on a new revised and comprehensive master list of all IMA-approved and grandfathered (i.e. inherited from before 1960) minerals.
