Innovation at Gove
We consult with Traditional Owners and other stakeholders about opportunities beyond the life of our operations in the region.
As part of our engagement with Traditional Owners in preparation for closure, we use virtual reality technology to illustrate rehabilitation processes and give insight into how the land may look in the future. This gives Traditional Owners the opportunity to see their future aspirations and share their feedback with us.
We are also using virtual reality technology to showcase Gove’s bauxite mining operation: viewers can experience mining from their seat and take a ride in a mine truck or a ship loader and even collect seeds with Traditional Owners, allowing them to experience life at our Gove Operations.
Our Gove Operations have been supporting local communities on the Gove Peninsula for more than 40 years. As one of the largest employers in the region, our local sponsorships and donations program provides financial and in-kind investments that enrich the region and maintain the community’s unique vibrancy.
Some of these projects include our decade-long sponsorship of the Yothu Yindu Foundation’s Garma Festival, and, for more than 30 years, our ongoing support of the Nhulunbuy Community Beach Volleyball Competition.
