The training facility structure was constructed by Wunan Maintenance Services, in partnership with Thermal Comfort Homes. The structure was assembled off-site and freighted to the Browns Range mine site to complete the final installations.

The Northern Minerals mine site is centred around the Browns Range Dome and covers an area exceeding 3500 square kilometres. The site is highly prospective for heavy rare earth (HRE) mineralisation and has the potential for further discoveries.

Wunan’s Employment & Training division has partnered with Northern Minerals to deliver a range of 6 week training programs in the near future. These training programs are designed to equip participants with various skills that will open up many employment possibilities within and beyond the mining industry.
