THE Western Australian Chamber of Minerals and Energy (CME) will host the Russian Ambassador Alexander Blokhin in a visit to Kalgoorlie-Boulder.

With the recent acquisition of LionOre Australia and OMG Cawse by Norilsk Nickel Ltd, there is now a considerable level of Russian investment in the Goldfields-Esperance resources sector.

During his visit, the ambassador will tour Cawse; KCGM Superpit; and BHP Billiton Nickel West Kalgoorlie Nickel Smelter.

The ambassador’s visit to Kalgoorlie-Boulder highlights the importance that the Russian mining industry views the Goldfields-Esperance region to its further growth and development, according to the CME.
