Dr Charles Warman inventor of the Warman Slurry Pump has been recognised for his contribution to the City of Kalgoorlie-Boulder with a plaque on the Kalgoorlie-Boulder Walk of Fame.
Dr Warman’s invention, The Warman Slurry pump, improved the efficiency of slurry pumps worldwide and have continued to be used in the mining industry for over 50 years.
Sidney Hocking, who among other things launched The Kalgoorlie Miner newspaper in 1895 and served as town mayor, was also recognised with a plaque.
Mayor Ron Yuryevich said the induction of Hocking and Warman recognised their contribution to the City not only through enterprise, but also for their longstanding commitment to the city.
“This is a wonderful opportunity for us, as a community, to recognise those people who have worked hard to make our City the wonderful place that it is, whether that be through philanthropic contributions or as industry leaders,”
