Community Engagement

VHM recognises the importance of responsible community engagement as an essential part of its activities. VHM is committed to open, timely and honest communication with all stakeholders throughout all project phases, including Project development, construction and operations for the life of the mine.

Substantial consultation with the community and regulatory agencies in relation to the Goschen Project has commenced, involving consultation activities with identified key stakeholders. In addition to ongoing ad-hoc communications and engagement, VHM holds regular meetings with a Technical Reference Group and a Stakeholder Reference Group, comprising of representatives from the local community. To-date, consultation has primarily involved discussions of investigative studies involved in characterising elements of the Project.
VHM values community and stakeholder feedback and will include community input into the planning and development of the Goschen Project.  The community is encouraged to discuss any aspect of the project with us by contact us via email on . We will also upload relevant notices that may be of interest to the community to the 'Community Notices' section of this website.
VHM is delighted to be a Platinum Sponsor of the Mallee Eagles
VHM is proud to be a sponsor of both the Mallee Eagles Football Netball Club and the Mallee Men Program. Comprising of more than 450 members, the Mallee Eagles Football Netball club is an important establishment in the community, offering sporting opportunities and bringing people together in support of their teams. In 2018, VHM signed a three-year sponsorship deal with the Mallee Eagles, which also included the provision of two electronic scoreboards for the netball courts and warm-up tops for the senior footballers. Conducted at the Swan Hill Leisure Centre every Monday and Wednesday evening, the Mallee Men Program provides participants with an outlet to build their fitness through cardio activities, enhance their mental health and wellbeing and enjoy a sense of camaraderie. VHM is pleased it could lend its support to the program by providing funding for boxing equipment.
