About Glencore

CSA Mine at Cobar, in regional New South Wales, is one of Australia’s highest-grade copper mines. At 1.8 kilometres deep, it is one of the deepest mines in Australia. We produce about 45,000 tonnes of copper each year. This is mined and processed on site, and railed 700 kilometres to the Port of Newcastle for export to smelters in Asia.

How will our students benefit from attending?

Students will benefit by having a chance to interact and network with Glencore's representatives who will provide an insight into careers in mining from a current engineer, with experience having worked across opencut coal, underground coal, and underground copper with a diverse range of technical exposure. Students have the opportunity to hear about careers available as well as pathways into the mining industry via the Q&A portion of the session.
