Australian Mining: Dubbo in NSW makes bid for mining school

The city of Dubbo in New South Wales, Australia, has made a bid for a mining school in the area, Australian Mining reports.

The Centre for Sustainable Mining Practices would ultimately be a $20 million investment and the city’s initial $7 million bid has already been lodged with the federal government, according to the Daily Liberal. The Centre would use virtual technology to train students and John Walkom, chairman of the Orana regional Development Australia branch said the city would be an ideal location.
