A smart partnership for a joint future

At last month's luncheon, WA Mining Club attendees were treated to an update on the Gruyere Gold Project with Gold Fields Australia and Gold Road Resources.

First discovered in 2013, the Gruyere Gold Project site lies 25 kilometres north-east of Gold Road Resources’ original Yamarna belt discovery, and is predicted to be a low-cost, long-life project over the next 13 years – far exceeding the shelf life of most existing Australian mine sites.

The allure of gold

The allure of gold

Gold has retained a hallowed place in the history of the Australian resources sector and beyond for generations, and its central part in Western Australia’s past is both colourful and fascinating. However, the story is far from over, and the importance of this rarest of precious metals in today’s economy can be seen when, at this year’s Diggers and Dealers Mining Forum in Kalgoorlie, almost 60% of the program of speakers comprised presentations by gold producers, explorers, prospectors or suppliers.
