Year 13 Chemistry Field Trip

From Mr Vijay: On the 19th of May 2021, the Level 3 Chemistry learners visited the Waihi Gold Mine. The learners had the opportunity to explore the mining operation at Waihi and talk to a Metallurgist who supported their learning and understanding of the chemical processes behind gold mining. A particular highlight of the trip was when the learners were shown the tailing ponds and discussed the importance of environment sustainability in the mining industry.
