Kalgoolie gold fields group meeting

The Goldfields Environmental Management Group (GEMG) is a technical and professional body of people working to achieve environmental excellence. Most of its members are located in the city of Kalgoorlie-Boulder situated in the Eastern Goldfields region of Western Australia.

The GEMG provides a source of information on environmental management practices with a focus on the miming industry; exploring issues such as community & external stakeholders, ecology (flora & vegetation, fauna, stygofauna etc.), environmental education & communication, environmental management systems, legislation, regulatory approvals & processes, materials characterization, mine closure, rehabilitation, waste management, recycling, water management...

Every two years the GEMG facilitates a conference on environmental management held in Kalgoorlie-Boulder, Western Australia. This biennial event is regarded by our members as the preferred conference to attend, offering value for money and providing an excellent networking opportunity for environmental professionals from all over Western Australia.

The Biennial Workshop will be held on May 21 and 22nd, and CEEC director Mary Stewart (Energetics) will address the delegates. Ms Stewart's topic is "Direct Action and the Goldfields industries: Carpe Diem." The full program may be viewed here. 

The first conference of this type was held in 1988 and is organised every two years by voluntary committee members of the GEMG. The conference draws over 300 professionals working in the environment sector associated with the mining industry, government bodies, private consultancies and non-government organisations. The conference aims at increasing environmental knowledge within the Goldfields, discussing current environmental issues.

The GEMG was formed in 1988 by a small number of individuals involved in land rehabilitation in the Eastern Goldfields region of Western Australia.
