The Labour Markets of Western Australia - with Darren Stralow

In this episode we have a returning guest who appeared back in October 2019 (Episode 46). Darren Stralow is the Chief Executive Officer at Bellevue Gold, a junior who has discovered an exceptionally high-grade gold system in the world-class Goldfields mining district and is one of the highest-grade and fastest-growing gold projects in Western Australia.

Darren is an experienced mining executive and qualified mining engineer with over 20 years’ industry experience and was a member of the senior management team at Northern Star Resources for over 10 years before joining the helm at Bellevue Gold. He gives us an overview of the company and what they are looking to achieve during 2023 and beyond. We discuss the labour market in WA and how Bellevue Gold set itself apart from other junior miners.


  • Bellevue is a startup company that has grown exponentially in the last six years, based upon an existing mine from the 1890s, and which was an on/off operation.
  • Coming from a broad corporate world has allowed Darren to hone his experience and gain a wide ranging set of tools that has equipped him well.
  • Bellevue already had a high quality team, but as it has grown over the last twelve months, it has led to a huge upswing in talent, and has allowed them to pull towards more ambitious goals.


‘It’s an amazing journey for a young professional to be involved in’

‘Bellevue as a company has built a significant high grade asset’

‘We’ve gone through the journey of being an exploration company, and now a development company’

‘You need to surround yourself with the right people’
