All sorts of mine workers and their families celebrated the end of 2017 at Mount Isa Mines’ Christmas party, just across the road from MIM at Kruttschnitt Oval.

Employees of the lead, copper, and zinc facilities at MIM attended the casual soiree on Friday, December 1, with picnic blankets in hand.

Music, food, drinks, and plenty of children’s entertainment made for a successful outdoor farewell to another year.

Children were given goody bags on arrival which each contained a paper expandable candy-striped Christmas hat, among other gems. 

One section of the oval was dedicated to inflatable rides and games, which were very popular with the younger party goers.

Later in the night Santa made an appearance, before MIM stepped it up with their famous fireworks display.
