Celebrating 30 years of operation on the Golden Mile, KCGM welcomed Goldfields residents and visitors to experience the region’s gold mining industry at a free community open day.
Held within the grounds of Hannans North Tourist Mine in Kalgoorlie on Saturday 29 June, the open day saw 3 500 locals, families, tourists and employees alike don their best high vis clothing and join in the celebrations.
More than 100 members and industry colleagues attended last month’s annual industry networking event at the historic Perth Mint, to discuss the future of gold mining in Australia with special guest the Hon. Bill Johnston MLA.
Australia’s largest precious metals event and the peak body of the country’s gold sector have come together in partnership at a time when enthusiasm for precious metals is at its highest in several years.
With many gold companies’ share prices having doubled and the Australian dollar gold price nudging record highs, the organiser of the Precious Metals Investment Symposium, Kerry Stevenson, says: “Our collaboration with the Gold Industry Group is a fantastic way to show the strength of the industry and its importance to Australia’s economy.
