Ramelius Resources recently spoke with the CEO of Mount Magnet Shire, to discuss the impacts of a community benefit fund the mining company set up to give back to the region in which they operate.
The purpose of the fund is to provide support for worthwhile community programs and / or community infrastructure, providing long-term benefits and involving local participation.
Last month’s RIU Explorers Conference was the biggest yet, with resources companies, brokers, funds, bankers, investors, government and suppliers come together to discuss exploration and production successes and opportunities.
Now in its 18th year, the conference featured a number of Gold Industry Group members.
For a lot of regional towns in Australia, the gold mining industry is the economic backbone contributing through jobs, livelihoods and security. But they are also an important part of the community.
For Liz Jones, her employment in the gold mining industry as a mining manager at Ramelius Resources’ Mt Magnet operation in Western Australia also comes with a focus on helping the local community.
The recent success of a grant funding application caused quite a whirl at the WA Centre for Rural Health (WACRH). The Mount Magnet team are in receipt of a Fender Blender Smoothie Bike.
Early this year WACRH applied for funding through the Shire of Mount Magnet’s Ramelius Resources Gold Community Benefit Fund to co-purchase a blender bike.
This new fund has generously been made available by local gold mining company Ramelius Resources to the Mount Magnet local community for the next three years.
