This site is about the life of Marion Oak Sticht (nee Stage), the subject of my novel “Marion.” Marion was the wife of Robert Carl Sticht, the American metallurgist whose genius made the copper mine at Queenstown, Tasmania viable. The Stichts came to the Mt Lyell field from Colorado in 1895, before Queenstown existed. They ended up spending the rest of their lives there – though not by choice. Brett Martin
