(contact Moline about this story)

In the 1950's and 1960's Moline was an ore processing centre for uranium ore from the nearby El Sherana mine. It was named after my grandfather, Arthur H P Moline, who was a prominent mining engineer involved in the early days of Australian uranium mining. As a child I had a lump of pitchblend the size of my fist which we used as a paperweight - probably not very safe, but what did we know! When I visisted Moline in 1987 they were prospecting for gold there and a little later operated a gold mine for a few years. It's a beautiful part of the world. Wendy Moline
