Tomingley Gold Operations Community Fund

As part of Alkane’s commitment to leave a positive legacy in the communities in which we operate, Tomingley Gold Operations is pledged to contribute financial support to local projects that will outlive the mine’s projected eight-year life.

Following a recent review of the original Voluntary Planning Agreement terms, TGO will contribute over $430,000 until the end of 2022 to notable projects and events via the TGO Community Fund on an applications basis. Administered by a panel of TGO and Narromine Shire council representatives, the TGO Community Fund will be used to support projects within Narromine Shire with the following objectives:

  • Economic Development – Projects or initiatives that directly contribute to the resilience and/or long-term economic growth of the community.
  • Community Connectivity – Projects or initiatives that promote community togetherness in a positive family-focused way.
  • Education and Training – Projects or initiatives that foster the education and up-skilling of members of the local community.
  • Community Infrastructure.


Notable recipients of the fund since 2014 include:

  • Tomingley Sport and Recreational Ground Trust for the provision of a new amenities block at the Tomingley Racecourse and Recreation Ground 
  • Ngarru Mayin Elders Aboriginal Corporation for repairs to the Historical Museum building in Narromine
  • Little Athletics Narromine Branch for new starting blocks for the athletes
  • Narromine High School for a garden project
