St Barbara’s Day pays tribute to the patron saint of mining and geology
Traditionally held on the first Friday of December, the WA Mining Clubs members and their guests take the opportunity to pause and appreciate the people dedicated to the mining industry, and celebrate the rich endowment of mineral wealth that underpins much of our economy and provides hope for the future. It is a time for fellowship and fraternity, and to remember those who have been lost in our industry throughout the past year.
Our guest speakers take the opportunity to share their personal journey of their career in the resources industry – particularly the highs and lows, and generally provide a story of inspiration to our audience.
St Barbara’s Day is one of the Club’s biggest events, attracting nearly 500 guests and is always attended by leaders of industry, government and media.
Our guest speakers for previous years have included:
Rio Tinto’s Chief Executive Iron Ore – Andrew Harding
Atlas Iron’s Managing Director – David Flanagan
The 2017 St Barbara’s Day event will be held on 1 December 2017
