A further part of the Director's wide-reaching scheme was soon put into execution in the premises at Craig's Court. He had planned that besides obtaining information from specimens, models, diagrams, and maps, the public should be enabled at a moderate cost to procure analyses of rocks, minerals, and soils, from the establishment under his control. He was authorised to fit up a laboratory and to appoint a. Curator of the Museum one of the ablest analytical chemists of his time, Richard Phillips. He likewise procured the sanction of the Office of Woods for the institution of lectures, having for their object the illustration of the applications of geology and of its associated sciences, to the useful purposes of life. Owing to the want of a suitable theatre and other appliances the design of providing lectures could not be carried into execution for twelve years. But eventually in the autumn of 1851, when the building in Jermyn Street was inaugurated, De La Beche's scheme was carried out by the opening of the School of Mines.
