Dreamtime at the G for young Zali

Gold Road Resources, a leading Western Australian gold developer and explorer, is a keen supporter of both the local indigenous communities in the Yamarna region of Western Australia, and the great game of AFL football.

Kayshun wins dream night at the "G"

Gold Industry Group founding member and leading Western Australian gold developer and explorer Gold Road Resources made one footy-mad 12-year old from the remote Cosmo Newberry Aboriginal Community dream come true on the weekend, winning the trip of a lifetime to Melbourne. 

Kayshun Murray won a competition, sponsored by Gold Road and open to all children of Yilka descent, in which they were asked to draw a picture or write a story summarising “what Australian Rules football means to me”. Kayshun’s winning entry was a picture describing football in relation to family, fitness and teamwork.
