Gross Sports Day
23 Sep 2015
Gross mine holds an annual sports day where the different business areas of the mine compete against each other in two tournaments. Using the recreational facilities that have been created as part on the ongoing rehabilitation of the mine's closed tailing dams the day saw furious competition in both the men's football and the women's volleyball competitions. Families were invited to the day, with the children of the miners joining in with their own mini-tournaments as well. The day finished with the General Manager, Jelena Petric, awarding prizes to the wining teams in each game. Afterwards the staff and their families enjoyed a BBQ, with the majority of the food coming from the mine's own farm in the Autumn sunshine.
The final results were:
Football - 1st Place Mining Shift A, 2nd Place Flotation and 3rd Place Mining Shift B
Volleyball - 1st Place Management 2nd Place Flotation and 3rd Place Administration Office
