The next GPIC event is to be held next Tuesday the 12th June, at Basement on View, Bendigo.
The speaker will be BENJ BEATTY from Victorian Iron.
Discussion topic will be Iron Exploration.
Apart from a brief foray into mining almost 140 years ago, iron ore has historically been considered a non-starter in the Victorian minerals race. All that is changing, however, as Victorian Iron has begun exploring for detrital iron deposits in Tertiary palaeochannels across the State. With current operations focused east of Shepparton, the company not only faces the challenges of defining a new resource and bringing it to market, but also of introducing a new industry to the local community of the Goulburn Valley.
