Melbourne Mining Club – Victorian Critical Minerals Initiative

On 9 May 2023, the Melbourne Mining Club held a special Cutting Edge Series event in partnership with the Victorian Government and Geological Survey, to launch the Victorian Critical Minerals Initiative.

Gippsland Critical Minerals together with other Victorian Critical Minerals companies participated in the event with a record attendance of 280 people.

As the global demand for critical minerals continues to grow exponentially, this special event put the spotlight on Victoria’s potential to produce and process the minerals and metals needed for tomorrow.

Forestec Tafe Campus visit to native seed production facility

Our Team hosted a visit from the Forestec Tafe Campus at our native seed production facility last week.

The students are undertaking a Certificate III in Conservation and Ecosystem Management which involves a component of theory and also fieldwork.

Murray Holland and Isaac Hoskin provided information on the Native Seed Facility and its important role in restoration of lands. Isaac completed a Certificate II in Horticulture school-based apprenticeship with Gippsland Critical Minerals and is now working with us on a permanent basis. We look forward to future visits from the Forestec students.
