Hello Mike, All,

With my most recent batches of submissions, I noticed that the more
interesting classifications were/are often held up due to insufficient
analytical justification (according to the folks in charge of
approving classifications). Equilibrated OC's all went through in a
matter of days or weeks, and the more interesting stones are...still
held up.

So when a list of equilibrated OC's like that comes up with ~10
missing numbers -- and all of the stones appear to have been submitted
by the same owner at the same time via the same classifying
institution -- you can be fairly certain that there are interesting
classifications still in the works.

> Hi Bulletin Watchers,
> 18 new OC approvals, all from the NWA dense collection area. Nothing
> too much to get excited about here, from a collector standpoint. But,
> we have seen a definite increase in approvals in recent months (or so
> it seems), and the number of official meteorites continues to climb.
> The Saharan Gold Rush may be arguably over or well past it's peak, but
> the classification process will be sorting these out for years to
> come.
