This Friday, the WA Mining Club will host its annual St Barbara’s Day luncheon to honour the men and women who have lost their lives in the resources industry in 2014.
The luncheon is a time for celebration and reflection comprising of a superb three course luncheon, presentation by guest speaker David Flanagan and the much anticipated draw of the WA Mining Club’s Royal Flying Doctors Service Raffle featuring a Kimberley Diamond fancy yellow diamond valued at $25,000.
David Flanagan will present at the luncheon detailing his experiences over the last 20 years in the multi commodity mining and mineral exploration in Australia, Indonesia and West Africa.
David was the founding Managing Director of Atlas Iron Limited in 2004, growing the company from a $9 million exploration business with one employee to a top 200 ASX listed mining company. Atlas is currently exporting iron ore at a rate of approximately 10Mtpa, from three operating mines, employing in excess of 1,000 people and generating revenues approaching $1 billion per annum.
David was awarded the 2014 Western Australian of the Year and West Australian Business Leader of the Year. David is also the Chancellor of Murdoch University and holds director positions at Youth Focus, Giving West, the Australian Mining Hall of Fame, the Western Australian Academy of Performing Arts and the Australian Institute of Company Directors.
