:: Austmine 2017 Awards Finalists Announced


Austmine’s biennial awards night will next take place on Tuesday 23rd May as part of our Austmine 2017: Mining’s Innovation Imperative conference in Perth.

Welcoming 500 senior industry executives, this event celebrates the best in Australian METS and Mining innovation and export. We have four prestigious awards that will be given on the night and, following an unprecedented number and quality of submissions, we are delighted to announce our finalists for all our awards.

Christine Gibbs Stewart, CEO of Austmine, commented on this year’s nominations:

“The Austmine awards are now in their fifth edition and 2017 has certainly been the highest calibre of submissions we have ever seen, challenging our judges in their roles to select finalists and an ultimate winner. Austmine is passionate about innovation and we are proud of the volume of Australian METS who export their innovative products and services to every mining nation in the world. The applications we’ve received for our awards is testament to the many companies here in Australia who are achieving excellence and I am looking forward to celebrating with all of our finalists and winners over in Perth later this month.”
