Last chance to enter mining contractor awards

Posted April 26, 2016


Contractors and suppliers working in Queensland’s mining industry have one week left to enter the Queensland Mining Contractor Awards.

Margaret Davies (pictured below), former regional supply chain manager for Anglo American and one of this year’s QMCA judges, says that businesses should do whatever they can to enter.

“The need for innovation is a theme that I see recurring throughout the industry, from the top down. If there are businesses of any size out there that are saving time and money for their clients, they deserve to be praised for their efforts,” Ms Davies said.Margaret Davies - HS

Others on the judging panel this year include Arrow Energy vice-president health, safety and environment Michelle Zaunbrecher, Jellinbah Mine production manager Michael Jones, and former BMA asset president Lucas Dow.

Bowen Basin Mining Club director Jodie Currie described the awards as a practical demonstration of the value a business could bring to the mining industry.

The exposure and industry credibility that an award finalist or winner would gain, particularly during an industry event such as QME, is an opportunity that should be fully recognised,” Ms Currie said.

Winners will be announced during a gala dinner on Wednesday, July 27 as part of QME in Mackay.

Tickets for the gala dinner are currently available for $175 per person or $1700 for a table of 10.
