The Waitaki Whitestone Geopark presents:
Macraes - A history from the start of time
Join us to learn more about the geology of the gold-bearing rock, the gold rush history at Macraes and the mining process at today's gold mine in Macraes.
A presentation by Amber Daniels:
Amber is one of two senior mine geologists in the open pit team at OceanaGold in Macraes. The key components of a production geologist is to define the boundaries between the gold-bearing rock and the waste rock. Amber had always enjoyed being outside so she decided on a geology degree at the University of Otago in Dunedin, where she grew up.
