Not so long ago, it was share price poison for a company to label itself a WA gold developer (reports The West Australian).

Not so long ago, it was share price poison for a company to label itself a WA gold developer (reports The West Australian). There had been so many high-profile disasters in the space that even risk-tolerant punters shunned aspiring miners in favour of producers or explorers.
