  Iron, IAB-MG

TKW 736.6 kg. Fall not observed. Found about 1940, Queensland, Australia.

From Buchwald:
The best information is that of Simmonds (1964) who conducted a field search and interviewed the local people. According to him, a mass (of about 735 kg, see later) was found in 1912 or 1913 by Mr. Tim Lee during the survey and construction of a dam on Tondoon Creek, four miles south of Gladstone.
