Year 12 Kalgoorlie Excursion

Year 12 Kalgoorlie Excursion

The Year 12 Earth and Environmental Science students caught gold fever during their recent excursion to Kalgoorlie and the "Golden Mile”. The students experienced a tour of the Superpit, presentations on exploration, mining, processing and environmental management, an inspection of the core library at the WA Geological Survey and geological mapping exercises at important outcrops in the WA goldfields. The trip was a highlight of the EES course and was an invaluable experience for the students. Most of the students will probably now be prospecting in their spare time, armed with their new knowledge of gold exploration techniques!
