There's been a positive response in Australia's media to the formation of the Gold Industry Group.
More than 60 people attended the launch of the group, which was supported by Deloitte Access Economics.
The West Australian noted the addition of Gold Fields as a founding member at the launch event which took place on day two of the Diggers & Dealers in Kalgoorlie-Boulder.
Meanwhile, Mining News reported on the launch of the organisation and flagged its importance as a "dedicated" group which would champion the gold industry, particularly in Western Australia. (Link behind a paywall).
