Nearly a month has already gone in 2015 and the mining sector looks set to endure similar challenges to those which arose in 2014.
The iron ore price is not faring well, neither is copper. On the upside, Gold has shown some promising signs in the last month.
Against this backdrop memberships to associations such as the WA Mining Club can edge out of focus.
However, the WA Mining Club is working hard to ensure members are kept up to date with industry trends and issues and armed with information and advice which can help underpin success.
The coming year will offer a similar host of member benefits as previous years, plus more.
Our monthly lunches will continue with a range of insightful guest speakers with tips and advice for combating challenging times while other speakers with specific acumen will address technical, operational, legislative and regulatory matters.
All events will provide a forum for discussing the mining environment with peers – the valuable networking opportunity on which the WA Mining Club was first founded in 1972.
In fact, this networking opportunity provides benefits unrivaled by any other business activity; being in a room with 400 people working towards similar goals provides an incomparable opportunity to learn and glean advice from others, not to mention forge new relationships.
“We know things are tough for our members are we’re working hard to bring them the most up-to-date and relevant information so they can best navigate the challenges,” WAMC President Neil Watson said.
“With a host of events and projects underway, we’re entering 2015 with enthusiasm.
“We look forward to seeing you at a range of WA Mining Club events this year.”
