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 start of September 2009, was substantial interest in - and high expectations for- coal resources in the Esperance region.

Two mining companies were in the process of completing feasibility studies indicating promising results.

A new drilling program in the Scaddan area was also on the horizon.

Mining company West Australian Metals Limited was set to begin a new three-week lignite drilling program in Scaddan.

The company also believed the Scaddan tenements were a prospective for primary gold mineralisation.
