NSW Mining 2019 Industry and Suppliers’ Award Winners Announced

May 30, 2019

The contribution of the NSW mining industry to our state was recognised at NSW Parliament last night with representatives of the NSW mining industry and mining supplier businesses joining over 20 Members of Parliament at the 2019 Industry and Suppliers Awards Dinner.
 
NSW Deputy Premier and Minister for Regional New South Wales, Industry and Trade, The Hon. John Barilaro, delivered the keynote address at the dinner, praising the contribution mining makes to the NSW economy and regional communities right across the State.
 
NSW Minerals Council CEO Stephen Galilee, said that the awards highlighted the importance of mining in fostering growth in regional communities by providing jobs and investment.
 
“Our Industry and Suppliers’ Awards highlight the vital role mining plays in NSW, particularly the contribution our industry makes to regional communities. We had outstanding entries for the awards this year, reflecting the quality of our State’s world-class mining sector,” Mr Galilee said following the Awards. 
 
“A strong mining sector is critical to NSW. Over 40,000 people work in mining in NSW, and coal, copper and gold are our State’s most valuable exports. NSW also relies on our sector for its energy needs, with our coal helping to generate around 80 per cent of NSW electricity,” he said.
