West Coast Council Goes Underground

2 March 2015

MMG Mine recently hosted West Coast Councillors and members of the Council Senior Leadership Team at their mine site in Rosebery.

The group were briefed by Mine General Manager Aaron Brannigan on the mine operations before undertaking a safety induction and heading underground to view first-hand how this integral part of the West Coast community functions.

“Learning more about how MMG operates and the contributions made to the local community was extremely interesting,” Mayor Phil Vickers said after the visit.  “To be able to witness the underground operations and see the pride displayed by employees in their work was remarkable”.

Council is actively engaging with West Coast industry as it works to build its role in economic development across the region.  Council will also shortly be commencing community engagement opportunities as part of the development of its strategic plan.

Visits such as the MMG tour will provide essential information from which to progress the strategic planning process.
