The Kalgoorlie Miner is the only regional daily newspaper published in Western Australia. The newspaper was established over 119 years ago and enjoys one of the strongest readerships and most loyal following of any newspaper in Australia. It is published Monday to Saturday each week, and is packed full of local news and sport, mining related stories and social pages, as well as world, national and entertainment pages.
It is a reflection of the thriving resource-rich region it services which is the Western Australian Goldfields-Esperance region. The hub of the Goldfields is Kalgoorlie-Boulder, located some 600km east of Perth and home of the Kalgoorlie Miner. It is the major commercial and distribution centre for the region.
To effectively represent the region’s strong resources industry in the newspaper, in addition to our daily coverage, every Thursday the Kalgoorlie Miner produces a 12-page industry-focus called Mine Talk. This features news, views and national and international trends affecting the mining sector.
The estimated Gross Regional Product of the Goldfields-Esperance region was $12,315 million (indicative only) in 2010-11*, which represented 5.7 per cent of Gross State Product for the same year. Its major industry is mining (72%)*, particularly gold and nickel mining, with growing iron ore interests."
