Newcastle Meet the Miners Networking Event - EVENT FULL

Newcastle Meet the Miners Networking Event - EVENT FULL

Austmine is excited to announce that our first Meet the Miners event for 2019 will be held in Newcastle on Wednesday 10th April. 

Our Meet the Miners event will foster closer collaboration between miners and METS, opening up dialogue around current operational issues, key initiatives and project requirements. Through direct engagement with senior management, our members will better understand the business fundamentals and operational factors driving decision making at projects in Australia. This provides an avenue to gain insights into the supply needs and requirements of major miners and their current priorities for implementation of innovative procedures and solutions on site, potentially saving time down the track in the procurement process. This is an unparalleled opportunity for Austmine members to establish and develop relationships with mining companies in the Hunter region. 

For mining companies, it is a chance to help current and potential suppliers in understanding their needs and challenges, to assist in building capabilities in line with these. It will also be an opportunity for them to discover new METS companies, major innovations and smart solutions, to help in identifying and achieving productivity, safety, environmental and efficiency goals. 

The format will be four mining companies, each sitting at a table with a facilitator. You will have fifteen minutes at each table, meeting all four miners over the course of the hour. After the session has concluded there will be networking drinks and canapes so that you also have an opportunity to continue discussions with the miners and connect with the other METS attendees in the room. 

We encourage you to make the most of this opportunity and ask your key questions to the companies in attendance. 

Confirmed miners in attendance include: 

  • Cam Halfpenny, CEO, Bengalla Mining Company
  • Adam Lancey, Head of Integrated Operations, BHP 
  • Rae O’Brien, Director - Underground Development, Peabody Australia

This event is only open to Austmine members and limited to one attendee per company, with a total of 32 places available. Tickets are $50 + GST and on a first-come, first-served basis. 

You must be logged into the Member Self-Service Portal to register. If you cannot remember your password, please email

Sponsorship opportunities are available for this event. Please email

Austmine's Meet the Miners events have established a reputation for being central to facilitating industry communication and bridging the gap between miners and METS in the Australian mining industry. We hope that you can join us in Newcastle to experience this first-hand. 

This event has now reached maximum capacity. Please contact if you wish to be added to the waitlist.
