Melbourne Mining Club update from the Chair
Dear sponsors, partners, members and friends,
I am writing to update you on activities of the Melbourne Mining Club. Surprisingly perhaps, we have been rather busy.
The Steering Committee is very much looking forward to presenting our next Town Hall event when COVID restrictions permit. We are excited about distributing copies of the ‘20+20’ commemorative book which is back from the printers.
The book was put together to mark the club’s 20th anniversary and is an outstanding collection of 30 essays from mining leaders who have graced the club’s stage over the past 20 years. We asked our speakers to remark on the past two decades and offer ideas of what our global industry will look like over the next 20 years. You will be very interested in their comments, observations and the photo galleries.
Due to COVID restrictions, we couldn’t hold the 20th anniversary lunch in August this year, where our speaker was to have been club stalwart and Chairman of 29Metals, Owen Hegarty OAM (also a contributor to the ‘20+20’ book). However, we are keen to distribute the book in soft copy which you can download today by clicking here.
Please feel free to download and read these essays. Also please feel free to pass on the download to others, if you are so inclined. A hard-back copy of the ‘20+20’ book will be distributed (at no cost to members, I might add) at our next luncheon event which will take place when restrictions on the size of gatherings allow.
We have had two Cutting Edge events this year, and we look forward to restarting this program, again when restrictions allow.
We thank all of you for supporting the club – especially our co-Patrons, our Principal Sponsors, our JV Partners, our Foundation Members, the Victorian Government through the Department of Jobs, Precincts and Regions, sponsors of the Cutting Edge Series and of course all 3,000+ members in Australia and across the globe.
On behalf of the MMC Steering Committee,
Richard Morrow, FAusIMM
