As part of our commitment to the development of Aboriginal people, KingKira Group proudly sponsored the WA Mining Club Indigenous Upskilling Scholarship for the Third year running.

The 2024 Scholarship was awarded to Robert Barker.

Robert, a proud Noongar man, has worked in the mining industry for over 20 years. After climbing the ladder as far as his qualifications could take him, Robert realized that if he wanted to go further in his career, he needed to upskill. Robert plans on using his scholarship to pursue a Certificate of Mining at Curtin University, with a goal of undertaking more senior roles in the industry.
