Episode: Destination WA – Our Golden Outback
Title: Evolution Mining
Broadcast: 20th July 2018
Presenter: Chrissy Morrissy

Mining is a huge part of life out here in the Goldfields… every day hundreds of people go underground in the goldfields but no longer is that tourists. The last underground tourist mine closed a couple of years ago.

  • Evolution mining’s Mungarri operation has a work force of about 350.
  • Its underground face is known as ‘frogs legs.’
  • The decline goes down almost 700m, with almost 7km of tunnels underground.
  • One minor has been working underground for 42 years!
  • You wouldn’t believe it, but there is actually a café, break room and toilets this far underground.
