About Us

The Goldfields Environmental Management Group (GEMG) is a technical and professional body of people working to achieve environmental excellence. Most of our members predominantly work within the mining industry of the Eastern Goldfields region of Western Australia, which includes employees of mining and exploration companies, environmental consultancy and service organisations and government agencies. 

The GEMG was formed in 1988 by a small number of individuals involved in land rehabilitation in the Eastern Goldfields region of Western Australia.

The GEMG provides a source of information on environmental management practices with a focus on the mining industry; exploring issues such as community & external stakeholders, ecology (flora & vegetation, fauna, stygofauna etc.), environmental education & communication, environmental management systems, legislation, regulatory approvals & processes, materials characterisation, mine closure, rehabilitation, waste management, recycling, water management.
