Having obtained a doctorate in geology at the University College of Wales, Aberystwyth, Dr R. L. Atkinson moved to Cornwall with her husband, also a geologist, to the world famous Camborne School of Mines. In 1972 she became the curator of its Geological Museum, re-establishing it in a new building. Although her interests cover most aspects of geology, living near both ancient and modern mines has lent an extra fascination to her study of how such an important metal was won from beneath the earth.
