Currently resides in: Gauteng, South Africa

Born in South Africa

Roger Dixon was born in Swaziland in 1959, and moved to South Africa in 1971. He attended the University of Cape Town and qualified with a B.Sc (Hons) in 1980, and then moved to Pretoria where he joined the Geological Survey of South Africa as a geologist in the Laboratory Division in 1981. Here his specific job was to run the X-ray diffraction laboratory. In addition, he did research into clay mineralogy and the analysis of plant material for geochemical exploration, completing his Masters degree on the interesting minerals from the Wessels Mine in the Kalahari manganese field.

In 1988 Roger became Curator of the Museum of the Geological Survey, and was soon immersed in minerals, which resulted in his being co-author in the description of three new minerals. He also researched and wrote the history of the Museum of the Geological Survey, obtaining a post-graduate Diploma in Meseology from the University of Pretoria.

Roger joined the Forensic Science Laboratory in Pretoria in 1994, where he is presently involved in research into the mineralogy of the Argent deposits and in novel methods of crime detection.
