It is with great sadness that we announce the death of our former Chairman for the WASMA Patrons group, Hon Peter Jones AM.

Peter was previously respective Ministers for Mines & Energy and Resources Development & Education, in the Sir Charles Court Governments. He was a retired farmer, held numerous appointments in the private sector and remained until his death very well connected and highly regarded in senior government levels.

Peter was a great believer in Mining Education and passionate about WASM. He will be sorely missed
