St Barbara’s Day pays tribute to the patron saint of mining and geology

Traditionally held on the first Friday of December, the WA Mining Club’s members and their guests take the opportunity to pause and appreciate the people dedicated to the mining industry, and celebrate the rich endowment of mineral wealth that underpins much of our economy and provides hope for the future. It is a time for fellowship and fraternity, and to remember those who have been lost in our industry throughout the past year.

Sharon Warburton will also be hosting the upcoming Women in Gold Sundowner, this year featuring a great debate. Join us.
