Throwback Thursday- A look back at a decade ago in the Express

Recent Throwback Galleries:

It's our favourite time of the week a chance to reflect on the changes in Esperance, the faces and the fun that was being had 10 years ago this week.

Making headlines at the end of July 31 was the prospect of the issue of nickel dust and nickel odours likely to become a thing of the past in Esperance - thanks to an innovative system that was being tested by Xstrata Nickel Australia.

The mining company was exporting nickel through the Esperance port in sealed containers, and was utilising local truck drivers for the operation.

Diversified Contracting secured the contract for the job and had employed a number of local drivers and sub-contractors.
