… if gold is the hot space in the market, the Victorian gold space is among the hottest parts of it after the stunning success of Canadian-listed Kirkland Lake Gold’s rejuvenation of the Fosterville mine in Bendigo.
– The Australian, 29 July 2020

There are now 20 companies exploring 70 tracts of land… [and] The state’s mining regulator is considering another 66 applications for sites in central Victoria, including for four sites north and east of Bendigo that would be opened for the first time ever.
– Bendigo Advertiser, 29 July 2020

Discovery of high grade gold at Fosterville in 2015 has revived Victoria’s moribund gold mining industry, and Fosterville may even overtake Newcrest’s Cadia mine in coming years for the rank of Australia’s most lucrative gold mine.
– Australian Financial Review, 30 July 2020

Informa Australia is delighted to run the Victoria Gold Mining & Exploration Forum as a digitally delivered event on the 27 August 2020. This event will examine the latest developments in gold mining and exploration in Victoria.
