MEC Mining hosted a networking event at Alchemy Restaurant & Bar on Friday 1st November 2019 which covered an area that can be quite daunting for individuals: How to make those difficult decisions and have those challenging conversations in a workplace.
MEC Mining has promoted its Manager of Consulting Services, Christofer Catania, into the role of General Manager Operations as the company expands its outlook.

Business Development Manager, Andrew Dittman and General Manager of Operations, David Plowman, are looking forward to attending the 6th Annual International Mining and Resources Conference & Expo (IMARC) on 29th – 31st October at the Melbourne Conventions & Exhibition Centre.
Needless to say, the past year has been busy and exciting. As we reflect on how far we’ve come, we’re pleased to say we have no regrets.
Our 13th birthday marked some significant changes in the way we run our business, as Directors Simon Cohn, Daniel Chippendale and Ted Boulton made the decision to step back from working in the business and instead turn their focus to strategic initiatives with clients.
The last mining downturn left us with a shortage of mining engineers, and the effects of this are far-reaching. Not only does the industry need to continue to focus on encouraging young people back, but graduate engineers who are at the beginning of their careers are facing a different trajectory of learning while they’re on the job.
Here’s what we, as mining companies, need to remember as we face this challenge.
MEC Mining’s Business Development Manager Andrew Dittman and Non-Executive Director Simon Cohn will be attending this year’s Diggers and Dealers Mining Forum on the 5th, 6th and 7th of August 2019 in Kalgoorlie, Western Australia.
This leading annual conference consists of presentations by listed mining and exploration companies with a large exhibition area, housing exhibitor from the sector. The delegation is made up of mining and exploration companies, brokers, bankers, investors, financiers and mining service industries.
At MEC Mining we are proud supporters of Young Mining Professionals (YMP) Brisbane.

Mining industry experts shared their perspectives on automation at MEC’s exclusive panel discussion and networking event on Thursday 27 June, 2019. Engineers and other industry representatives gathered at Brisbane’s Alchemy Restaurant and Bar for the breakfast event, entitled Digital technology: Automation at the forefront.
With mining providing 1.1 million jobs and around 10% of all employment, if you’re a recent graduate, or graduating shortly, we would encourage you to consider a future in Australia’s mining industry.
With a mini boom being experienced in the industry due to the billions of dollars that are being invested in new projects and exploration, many companies are on the hunt for the best graduates. The mining industry offers countless fulfilling and rewarding career opportunities for graduates with degrees in any number of disciplines, including engineering, environmental science, business, geology, human resources, occupational health and safety, information technology, and more.
