Recognise your industry partners
Australian METS companies have just over three weeks remaining to apply for the annual METS Ignited Collaboration Award.
The Collaboration Award is an opportunity to recognise organisations that have worked with you to achieve mutual business success.
It will be presented to the winners at the gala dinner for the IMARC conference in Melbourne in November.
Reasons to apply
There are a number of reasons to apply for the Collaboration Award:
- recognition in all METS Ignited publicity about the award and the gala dinner, which is sponsored by METS Ignited. This includes media releases, website and social media.
- potential opportunity to present in the METS Ignited Delegate’s Lounge at IMARC
- use of the METS Ignited Collaobration Award logo on company letterhead, newsletters, websites
- presentation of the award at the IMARC gala dinner, which attracts industry leaders from Australia and abroad.
The 2016 award was won by Core Resources and Glencore Technology for their collaborative efforts in commercialising the Albion Process – a novel technology for processing refractory ores, where the valuable mineral is microscopically encapsulated in non-reactive waste and is not extractable by conventional technologies.
