Samuel George Turrell MAusIMM was a metallurgist who travelled the world in his role as a representative for the American Cyanamid Company. In the 1930s he made 8mm movies of his travels which he showed at AusIMM meetings. Turrell died in 1940 and his movies then found their way to the AusIMM Archives. The attached article gives further details, with an index of the films, listing the mines, locations and people appearing in them. The locations include mines in Burma, the Philippines, Malaya, USA, Australia, Canada and Fiji. Typically, they begin with a slow panoramic sweep showing the entire operation. The film quality varies, and most of the colour films are quite faded.
