Louis Hissink

Louis Hissink (MSc, Macquarie University) was a consulting diamond geologist, formerly of John Taylors, Western Mining Corporation Ltd and De Beers. He has worked for other smaller companies in Western Australia and the Northern Territory.


He is now retired living on the family farm near Bega on the Sapphire Coast.

His time now is spent mowing 30 acres of lawn, dodging plovers and trying to outwit rosellas, cockatoos, supervising herds of kangaroo lawn mowers, red-bellied black snake vermin terminators, and manages to also spend time on the model railway, playing music on the Hi Fi, studying economics, political theory and historical revisionism, apart from trying to explain the Earth’s geology using plasma physics.​

Spring cleaning and Henry has moved house to a new web service; Henry’s Spring as it were, to coin a hackneyed phrase.

So we have survived another federal election and I have to say that the winning margin of one seat in the House of Representatives with an increase in independents in the Senate means our ‘lurch-to-the-left’ Liberal National Party will find it difficult to enact new legislation. And then on the other hand if th...
