Minerals Council of Australia NT Division : Minerals Council Aust NT Div 2012
Minerals Council of Australia 7 Executive Director’s Report embraced as part of the 2012 program with broader application and trials being undertaken at GEMCO and in a number of prisons throughout the Northern Territory. Chris Natt continues to lead the MCA Indigenous Pre- Employment Program with infectious enthusiasm and continues to be a valuable asset to the industry. Our ongoing representation on the Indigenous Economic Development Taskforce allows us to table and share our practical learnings with various key stakeholders from Government, land councils, business and industry. The Darwin Mining Club continued to be a real success in 2011 with luncheon attendances climbing throughout the year. Luncheon speakers included the Honourable Kon Vatskalis, Mr Alan Wright, Mr Kevin Gillan and Mr James McMahon. A golf day was held in June at Palmerston Golf Club to take advantage of "the dry" and provided members with a different networking event. The culmination of the Darwin Mining Club calendar was the gala dinner held on 11th November and attended by around 170 guests. Proceeds from the dinner totalling $15,000 were donated to Menzies School of Health Research, cementing a new affiliation between the two organizations. During the year the Darwin Mining Club also supported the North Australian Emergency Response Competition as a bronze sponsor. The success of the Darwin Mining Club will allow contributions to industry-related organisations and events to continue and grow in 2012. During 2011 MCA NT Division offered our support to help formally establish a resources networking group in the Northern Territory. The objectives of the NT Women in Resources group are consistent with the Minerals Council of Australia's objectives of increasing participation and retention of women in the resources sector. MCA NT Division has been pleased to provide financial and in-kind assistance to the group who are led by a number of passionate and dedicated people including Ms Marcia Kelly and Ms Linda Young. Membership is open to men and women and the group meets regularly at MCA NT Division offices. While exploration continues to reach record levels in the Territory, the NT Explorers Council meets regularly to discuss various issues affecting the industry. The group also provides feedback and advice on regulatory issues that affect explorers. During 2011 the Explorers' Council met to discuss a number of issues including changes to the Minerals Title Act. The Council is led by Mr Rob Bills from Emmerson Resources. While 2011 was an eventful year, the support and participation of our members has proven invaluable. As an industry body we depend on guidance and advice from our members to ensure we continue to represent your views. To the members of our various committees and the NT Management Committee we thank you for your time and ongoing support. And finally thank you to Tamara Henderson our Office Manager who is our first point of contact and administrative support. Tamara delivered on an enormous workload in 2011 and still continues to organise us all. The small team at MCA NT Division looks forward to continuing to represent and work with you all during 2012. MCA NT Division continues to work closely with NT WorkSafe to finalise these provisions and has provided members with regular feedback and advice in addition to a member's workshop held in Darwin in September.
