Report on the Mineralogy of New River Cave
John W. Murray


This report from the Committee on FOrmation and Mineralogy of the VPI Grotto, submitted by its Chairman, excellently portrays the importance of speleological research. All members of regular grottos of the NSS, and members of student grottoes in particular, should realize after reading this article, that any number of scientific projects could be undertaken to add to our much-needed knowledge of literally hundreds of caves which have been "seen" but which have not yet been "studied".
