Connecting the WA mining industry

The West Australian Mining Club (WAMC) was formed in 1972 by a group of dedicated Perth based industry professionals who recognised the value of meeting regularly to network and discuss industry issues.

Members include leaders from mining companies and associated industries including geologists, engineers, metallurgists, accountants, economists, lawyers, journalists, government representatives, university researchers, technical representatives, drilling company representatives, suppliers and more.
