Over 150 male and female high school students converged on Central's Northbridge campus last week to learn more about a career in mining from resource sector professionals.
The Get Into Mining days, run on 28-29 June, were designed by industry people from some of Perth's top resources companies to promote interest in the sector.
"We need more young people in mining but not many of our students know what it involves and how to get there," organiser Meryl Jones of St Barbara said.
"With Get Into Mining they met people and experienced first hand what we do and even got into a simulated underground environment at the training mine at Central."
