Writeup from MB 100:

Fillmore        49°53'N,  103°36'W

Saskatchewan, Canada

Found: 1916

Classification: Iron meteorite

Correction: The correct find location of the Fillmore meteorite is that of the town of Fillmore, 49°53’N, 103°36’W. The location of the Kinley meteorite was incorrectly ascribed to that of the Fillmore meteorite in Meteoritical Bulletin no. 50 (page 118). The correct location was recorded by J.A.V. Douglas and W.F. Slawson, as verified from the records of the National Meteorite Collection, Ottawa, Canada by R.K. Herd.
