Gold Mining Journal is Australia’s only dedicated gold mining industry magazine.
Published quarterly, the magazine offers comprehensive coverage of the gold industry both in Australia and worldwide.
In addition to contributions from respected columnists, widespread news coverage on the gold sector is provided by Gold Mining Journal’s journalists, who frequently visit mines in Australia and around the world with mining company executives.
When Mark Zeptner took the reins of Ramelius Resources back in 2014, the company had minimal cash in the bank, an underperforming gold mine and an uncertain future. Six years later, having turned fortunes around at Mt Magnet and executed a series of strategic acquisitions including Edna May and Spectrum Metals, Ramelius is now on the brink of churning out 3000,000 ozpa for the first time. Senior journalist Michael Washbourne speaks with Zeptner about how he transformed the company into a “serious” gold miner while having a bit of fun along the way.
