Gove Trip 2013

My Scholarship entry - A 'place' I have visited - Gove 2013

The Rio Tinto Alcan Bauxite mine at Yirrkala, provides a place of work for many of the local and transient labour force that reside in Gove. The mine boasts an impressive 26 km conveyor belt which moves 3000 tonne’s of bauxite ore per hour,  from the mine to the refinery. There is some speculation on the future of the refinery and therefore its impact on the Gove community in general.
