40TH ANNIVERSARY CELEBRATIONS

Celebrating 40 years
After consulting with many of our stakeholders, we decided to postpone our regular luncheon series.
The safety and wellbeing of all our members and attendees is of paramount importance and our top priority.
For many of us, the current events are causing significant challenges and uncertainty for our businesses. However, one thing we know with certainty, is that our industry has prospered through its ability to innovate, adapt and utilise new technologies.
The WA Mining Club Young Professionals aspires to drive diversification and innovation within the mining industry, through creation of a forum that supports development and retention of young professionals. We will establish a career-long network of individuals who are building their careers in mining.
Members of the WA Mining Club receive access to a broad range of industry speakers, who discuss technical, operational, legislative and regulatory matters, as well as sharing thoughts on the broader industry.
Our monthly luncheons are regularly attended by in excess of 300 members, all eager to listen, talk and share information about their experiences with their industry peers.
Being a member of the WA Mining Club provides the very best opportunity around to meet other industry professionals and discuss topical issues, challenges and innovations with others across the spectrum of the Western Australian mining industry.
