Gary Morgan, Executive Chairman Haoma Mining: "We congratulate the iconic Australian entrepreneur Dick Smith on being awarded an Order of Australia earlier this week as part of the Queen’s Birthday Honours List.

"On May 15 Smith took the time to visit the Haoma Comet Gold Mine at Marble Bar. Haoma Manager Peter Cole provided Smith and his wife Pip and friends with a guided tour of the mine, tourist facilities and historic Marble Bar.”


Dick Smith: "What a wonderful day we had at Marble Bar last Friday. Peter Cole did a wonderful job and it has certainly been the highlight of our trip. All the best and thanks again for making these arrangements for us."


Gary Morgan: "The Directors of Haoma agree with Smith giving high praise to Australia’s richest woman, Gina Rinehart, for the investment she’s undertaken with her Roy Hill iron ore mine – Smith described it as 'equivalent to 10 Snowy Mountains Schemes 'and said he had ‘never seen anything like it in his life’ as reported in The Age & Sydney Morning Herald today.

“Smith also asserted that Australia needed investors like Rinehart and Fortescue Chairman Andrew Forrest to continue driving the Australian economy forward as we are kidding ourselves if we think industries like manufacturing are driving Australian prosperity at the moment."
