DMP holds 'lunch and learn' session.

Industry people had the chance to meet with Department of Mines and Petroleum (DMP) officer and discuss face to face any queries they had about online systems and industry regulation.

The first ‘lunch and learn’ networking session held at the department’s East Perth office yesterday was developed by expanding DMP’s regular Geological Survey (GSWA) database training sessions for prospectors and explorers to include assistance from Mineral Titles and Environment representatives.

Event coordinator Robin Bower said the networking session was an opportunity for the department to further engage industry stakeholders to help address concerns and provide training.

“Attendees at the GSWA training session appreciated the opportunity to network with officers from the Environment and Mineral Titles Divisions, as well as Geological Survey officers, in an informal setting,” Ms Bower said.

“The department is commitment to ongoing stakeholder engagement and liaison and events like this facilitate greater understanding between our officers and those who are using our online systems.

“DMP regularly liaises with key stakeholders including industry, environmental non-government organisations and community groups through formal consultation processes such as the Mining Industry Liaison Committee and Reforming Environmental Regulation Advisory Panel.

“The need for additional training opportunities in the department’s online systems was first raised by the Associated Prospectors and Leaseholders Association via these formal engagement processes.”

Additional online training and networking sessions will be run in Kalgoorlie on 18 June and 5 November, and further sessions will be held in Perth on 25 June and 29 October.
