Golden Grove is situated in the Mid West region of Western Australia within the Local Government Authority of the Shire of Yalgoo.
As part of Golden Grove’s social licence to operate, the mine has an established and enduring relationship with the Shire, the local Yalgoo community, pastoral neighbours, contractors, regulators and stakeholder organisations from nearby Geraldton and the wider Mid West region.
Golden Grove is a long-term operational resource within the region and over time has directed significant energy and resources into building its community relations programs.
The community relations program at Golden Grove involves having active practical involvement in community programs and participating in a number of stakeholder forums. It is underpinned by social needs analysis determined from active and responsive community participation.
An important part of this broad and proactive approach to community is to ensure the programs support local and regional priorities for community development.
Below are links to community-related programs supported by Golden Grove.
