KCGM’s latest Safety Innovation Award recipients have chosen to donate their wins to three local organisations: Full Circle, Goldfields Women’s Refuge and the Headspace Kalgoorlie branch.
The three award winners for this quarter were Matthew Adams from Open Pit Mining, Kate Scolyer and Kevin Barry from Processing and the Mount Charlotte Underground Operational Supervisors.
To mark the 2019 NAIDOC celebrations, KCGM unveiled a haul truck tray designed and painted by local Aboriginal artist Jason Dimer.
The design reflects the connection between mining, people and the environment, and serves as a visual reminder of the importance of reconciliation in Kalgoorlie-Boulder.
KCGM have launched an innovative three-year project in the City of Kalgoorlie-Boulder, where the public can give feedback and share ideas, to better understand the community’s sentiment toward its operations.
The project, Local Voices, invites community members to face-to-face consultations and confidential surveys, so people can see the direct impact and benefit of their feedback in influencing KCGM’s business decisions.
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 has released results from a study conducted by Deloitte Access Economics into the gold industry, revealing its significant contribution to Australia’s history, economic development and social advancement.
“From the 1850s, the demand for gold has helped grow, sustain and define Australia,” said Deloitte Access Economics Partner Matt Judkins.
