It’s been another busy month in the Goldfields, with one of the highlights being the completion of the Northern Star and Saracen merger – a deal which will see the Super Pit continue operating until at least 2035.
New opportunities for Goldfields businesses
The GE Business Register is now up and running and interest has been strong. As of late February, 150 businesses had already registered, enjoying increased visibility and opening up the potential for extra work.
The Register is an online platform encouraging local small, medium, and large businesses to increase local spending. Businesses have the option to register on the platform to improve their visibility to suppliers and purchasers, and also to register as suppliers to the mining industry and showcase their skills and capabilities to mining companies.
The Kalgoorlie Boulder Chamber of Commerce and Industry (KBCCI) has a resource dedicated to the Register and can help Goldfields businesses join up and answer any of their questions. Please contact Sharon Henderson at the KBCCI at email@example.com if you have any queries.
Only two months to go until SMERC
The Goldfields Surface Mines Rescue Competition (SMERC) will be held over three days from April 30 to May 2. Evolution Mining has very kindly offered to host this year’s event and 10 teams have already nominated to compete. SMERC 2021 sponsorship packages have also been released and are selling fast.
SMERC is always a highlight on the Goldfields calendar and this year’s event promises to be no different. For event details, contact Emma Woodcock at Merc@cmewa.com
