Virtual Open Day Presentations

Bowdens Silver held two Virtual Open Days on the 2nd and 3rd of July 2020. A range of presentations were delivered and questions answered by representatives from the company, RW Corkery & Co (EIS authors and principal environmental consultant) and other specialist consultants who have contributed to the Environmental Impact Statement.

Community Open Day – Thank You

Bowdens Silver would like to thank all community members who attended our Open Day on Saturday 15th of June. Approximately one hundred people took the time to visit us on the day to learn more about the Project. Attendees had the chance to hear from the company and also meet and ask questions to a range of independent experts who are providing information for the Environmental Impact Statement.

We would also like to thank the Rylstone Kandos Volunteer Rescue Association who manned the BBQ on the day.

Also, a big congratulations goes to Brenton Franks who guessed the closest to the correct grade of silver for the drill core sample that was on display. For his troubles, he took home a 1kg silver ingot that was up for grabs. Well done!

“Pink Up” Morning Tea Fundraiser

On Friday 13th of October, Bowdens Silver staff held a morning tea fundraiser event as part of the “Pink Up” initiative currently running throughout the region.

The event was organised by a number of staff members and the day involved fundraising activities such as raffles, donations and even a couple of brave staff members who volunteered to get their hair dyed pink for an appropriate monetary donation. A big thank you to Cody and Craig for getting into the spirit of the day and putting vanity aside all in the name of a good cause.

Most importantly, Bowdens Silver staff were able to raise $600 which was generously matched by the company, for a grand total of $1,200 being donated to the McGrath Foundation to help continue their important work of providing dedicated breast care nurses throughout the community.

Community Information Open Day at Lue

Community Information Open Day at Lue

On Sunday 20th November, we held an Information Open Day on site at our Lue office to update residents and interested parties on the progress of the Bowdens Silver project. A slide-show and presentation by Anthony McClure and Jane Munro was followed by a Q & A session. Despite the heat, around fifty people attended and we’d like to thank all those present for their interest and participation.

Environmental staff were on hand to demonstrate and explain aspects of our environmental monitoring program and the geology team set up a display of core and rock samples to show some of the fascinating and relevant mineralisation in the area.
