Families of Stanmore Coal, Golding and other contractors from Isaac Plains Mine were out in force on the weekend at the Isaac Plains Family Day, experiencing first-hand what it means to operate and maintain a coal mine.
For the third year, more than 120 family members boarded the tour bus for their chance to see the Isaac Plains site and equipment displays, and take part in a range of fun and interactive activities for all ages.
The CAT haul truck simulator and emergency response road-crash demonstration were highlights for the kids, as well as the trivia quizzes, nature hunt and water experiments.
“It’s not every day our team has the opportunity to show families around and share their day-to-day experiences,” said Golding Site Administration Officer Danielle Luhrs.
“It’s fantastic to see the broader community come together — we hope everyone left the Family Day with some newfound knowledge and understanding of what their mums and dads and other family members do here at Isaac Plains.”
The day would not have been possible without the collaboration of Stanmore Coal, Golding, Action Drill and Blast, Hastings Deering and all the other vendors who contributed. Thank you!
Stanmore Coal hopes to continue this annual event of community, family and fun next year.
