Queensland Mining Awards 2020

About QMA

The 2020 Queensland Mining Awards are proudly presented by the Bowen Basin Mining Club (BBMC), in partnership with the Queensland Resources Council.

Queensland’s premier bi-annual Awards celebrate the spirit of innovation, excellence and collaboration fostered within our highly competitive industry. All companies involved in Queensland’s minerals and energy resources sector, from mining companies right through to contractors and suppliers, are invited to enter the Awards and gain recognition for their hard work and entrepreneurial spirit.

This is a rare opportunity for businesses of all sizes to present their successes to a large, diverse group of key industry influencers, and to receive the acknowledgement of their peers on several levels.

Award winners will be recognized for the quality outcomes they provide to the resources industry as well as for their commitment to innovation, and the delivery of projects that are safer, smarter, faster and more efficient.
