The Gold Industry Group (GIG) partnered with the Kalgoorlie-Boulder Chamber of Commerce and Industry (KBCCI) to deliver its annual community expo, ‘Explore the Goldfields’, showcasing the extensive activities and services available to new and existing residents.
The expo saw 70 stallholders interacting with the public, with some businesses even offering raffles or free gifts.
Thousands flocked to the centre of Kalgoorlie-Boulder on Sunday for the annual St Barbara’s Day Parade, where colossal mining vehicles rumbled down Hannan Street festooned with mascots, Christmas angels and a couple of famous footy sons.
Now in its 19th year, the festival drew around 15,000 people to celebrate the patron saint of miners and the industry’s contribution to the state’s heritage, economy and community.
The Gold Industry Group is supporting the Kalgoorlie Boulder Chamber of Commerce and Industry's (KBCCI) inaugural Kal Jobs Expo that will be held in Perth at CCIWA on Wednesday, 28 March.
