Why GET INTO RESOURCES!
High quality, immersive experience
Get Into Resources provides a unique, high quality interactive experience which brings secondary students, teachers, training course providers, tertiary students, industry representatives and resources companies together.
Passionate industry professionals share their stories and present an industry relevant, hands-on activity with small groups of students (maximum of 10). This ensures each student has the opportunity for a personalised immersive experience. There is no other resources industry careers event in Western Australia like it!
Chance to visit an operating mine
No other careers event gives its students and teachers the chance to win a full-day, all expenses paid visit to an operating minesite!
Get Into Resources is lucky enough to have Platinum Sponsor Sandfire Resources NL provide the fabulous annual Quiz Prize of a site visit to its DeGrussa copper mine.
Every student who participates in Get Into Resources can enter the Quiz. One winner from each day of Get Into Resources (three in total), plus a friend who attended Get Into Resources with them and their teacher, are flown to DeGrussa from Perth where a mine tour awaits. This is followed by lunch, a visit to the exploration area and an opportunity for discussion and question time, before returning to Perth late afternoon. The feedback from both students and teachers who have attended has been incredible!
