President’s Address

Happy New Year everyone!  I hope you all have had a safe and happy holiday season and have returned to work with a renewed and positive outlook for 2023. 

There is a lot changing in the mining industry and a lot of improvements to be had. 

We have had the WA state government advising they will introduce the climate change legislation this year to establish a framework for responsible emissions reductions to meet WA’s goal of net zero by 2050. We also had the DMIR’s Safety 21-22 Statistics digest provide detailed information on the performance of WA’s resource sector, and the significant production and employment records broken during the past financial year. 

This year, we want to have more Young Professionals in the room. We can’t have a future mining industry if future leaders are not a part of the conversation.  Please think about bringing someone from your company or your network who may want to start their journey to our upcoming events.

The committee is excited about what we have planned for 2023 for the WA Mining Club.
