New Zealand Minerals Forum 2018

A massive thanks to everyone who contributed to New Zealand Minerals Forum 2018. With over 290 attendees, the inaugural event was a huge success.

Congratulations to our Minerals Sector Award winners:

  • Innovation Award – OceanaGold Waihi
  • Environmental Management Award – Greenbriar (Ohai Coal) 
  • Health & Safety Initiative Award – Road Metals

Chair of the judging panel Bernie Napp said the awards for excellence in mining and quarrying supported the Forum’s purpose, which is to share information “at the cutting edge of our industry”. 

“Our thanks to the awards entrants who are talking up the industry - which is where we need to be - and for the sterling effort they went to in preparing their entries.”

We look forward to receiving your entries for the 2019 Awards – more to be announced later in the year.

Thanks to New Zealand Petroleum & Minerals, Bathurst Resources, AusIMM, OceanaGold, Gough CAT and all our 2018 sponsors and exhibitors for their great support and contribution to this event.

Planning is already underway to make Minerals Forum 2019 bigger and better. Get in touch if you want to be part of this – we love new ideas and look forward to seeing you on Tuesday 28 & Wednesday 29 May next year.
