Organisers of MINEX, the Mount Isa mining exhibition, are planning a bruising end to the 2015 event.

They’ve partnered with the Mount Isa Rodeo School to present the MINEX Man v Beast closing function.

There’ll be a rookie open bull ride, junior bull ride, barrel race and team roping.

It was a fitting tribute to the event’s 20th anniversary said Manager of Commerce North West, Sue Wicks.

“The closing function is traditionally our largest of the program; allowing exhibitors, sponsors and staff an opportunity to relax, unwind and network so we really wanted to deliver something worthy of the work,” Ms Wicks said.

The MineX Man v Beast Closing Function will take place at Kalkadoon Arena, Buchanan Park May 14. Tickets will be on sale for $60 each in coming weeks. The event is open only to MineX exhibitors, sponsors and their guests.

MineX 2015 kicks off at Mount Isa’s Buchanan Park on Wednesday May 13. The major sponsor is Energy Power Systems Australia.
