Gold 125 Conference

Organiser:  Understanding Mining

Date:  15th and 16th June

Time:  9am to 5pm

Venue:  Hannans Club

Details:  In June 1893, three prospectors – Paddy Hannan, Tom Flanagan and Dan Shea found alluvial gold east of Coolgardie in Western Australia; the subsequent discovery of the “Golden Mile” created one of the richest mining areas in the world.

The Conference is part of a weekend of community celebrations that coincides with the 125th Anniversary of the Australian Institute of Mining and Metallurgy (AusIMM) and the 115th Anniversary of the Kalgoorlie School of Mines.

The Conference will look at the role of mining heritage in regional revitalisation and tourism, policy and regulation including famous Miner’s Rights, innovations in technology and infrastructure, Indigenous cultures and education.

Everybody is welcome to this community focussed event not to be missed.  Registration fee of $125 includes morning tea, lunch, afternoon tea, conference delegate package, visit to geology museum and outlines of all presentations.
