This golden crop is not new to the wheatbelt and in the current climate presents a great opportunity to revitalise our regional communities. Gold mining utilises minimal land areas, but will generate many more jobs and wealth per hectare than any other crop and will be a welcome addition to the local economy. Good on Ausgold and Explaurum for your focus and endeavour, and to the farm communities of the Wheatbelt to seize the opportunity to strengthen and grow.
