Kalgoorlie has always been a place for breeding innovation. During the nickel boom there was a great concentration of mining professionals here. We are in the middle of the Yilgarn Craton and will always be here. The shame of it is that the Federal and State Governments have not ran with the idea of supporting mining innovation. (Although the CSRIO has done a great job lately). Most Countries would love to have our situation, and would have made the most of it.
