The Central West Mining & Extractive Environment Team MEET again in Mudgee

June 25, 2015

Persistent rain was not enough to dampen enthusiasm for a group of environment and community professionals from across the Central West who met last week in Mudgee as part of the annual Central West Mining & Extractive Environment Team (MEET) get together.
Hosted by Alkane Resources (Dubbo office), the group was originally formed by Greg Unwin (former DRE Mines Inspector) more than a decade ago and has grown to fifty members.
Last year, attendees were given a tour of Alkane’s mine sites - including the Dubbo Zirconia Project which was granted approval by the PAC earlier this year.  
Activities at the most recent event included a mine tour, networking session and seminar. Attendees included mining professionals and consultants, regulators and researchers who relished the opportunity to share knowledge regarding mine sites and working with communities. 
Attendees of the event last week were shown around Glencore’s Ulan Coal Mine where water management infrastructure and progressive rehabilitation were on show.
Some of the topics up for discussion in the afternoon included Aboriginal Engagement and Employment, Innovation, Contributing to Regional communities, Mine rehabilitation as well as the success of the NSW Minerals Council’s Voice for Mining network.
