Our History

Gemia History

GEMIA dates back to 2008 when a passionate group of community volunteers sought to increase the number of students taking up science subjects at school, develop partnerships and increase career opportunities in the mining industry.

Since inception, GEMIA has delivered highly regarded programs and events to more than 5000 students from 20 different schools across the Goldfields-Esperance region and beyond.

One of the keys to our success it the fact that students are linked to industry professionals to learn about mining careers with a focus on geology, metallurgy, underground mining, occupational health and safety, and the environment. Activities are delivered in an interactive way to demonstrate the real world application of scientific concepts.
