We often rave about the fact that Central Deborah Gold Mine is a "real" gold mine that was once run as a commercial operation back in the first half of the 1900's. What people often don't realise is that, even though it is now running as a tourist operation, we still have real miners on site, taking care of the underground workings and surface machinery.
In order to effectively and safely run this operation, we have a Mine Manager, Karl Penrose and a mine crew who take responsibility for the safety of our staff and visitors as well as for maintaining the mine in working order.
We thought you might like a bit of "inside information" as to the work that happens behind the scenes. We think you'll be surprised to see just how much work happens to keep the mine up and running.
