The Bowen Basin Mining Club (BBMC), in partnership with the Queensland Resources Council, were proud to host the Queensland mining industry’s premier awards event, the 2018 Queensland Mining Awards. The Awards have been designed to celebrate the spirit of innovation, excellence and collaboration that is fostered within our highly competitive industry.

All businesses involved in Queensland’s minerals and energy resources sector from mining companies right through to contractors and suppliers, were invited to enter the Awards and gain recognition for their achievements. This is a rare opportunity for businesses of all sizes to present their successes to a diverse group of key industry influencers, and be acknowledged by their peers on several levels.

Award winners will be recognised for the quality outcomes they provide to the mining industry as well as for their commitment to innovation and the delivery of projects that are safer, smarter, faster and more efficient. The Awards were held in the heart of the Bowen Basin at the Mackay Entertainment and Convention Centre on Wednesday 25th July 2018, in collaboration with the biannual Queensland Mining & Engineering Exhibition (QME).
