Iluka Resources received a Golden Gecko award for environmental excellence for commissioning a bespoke seeding machine 'Flora Restorer' to support rehabilitation works at their Eneabba mine site.
The innovation has significantly improved the diversity and growth of revegetation after mining, in an area with challenging natural conditions for seedling growth.
Tronox Mining Australia was awarded a certificate of recognition for their Ludlow Tuart Forest Post-Mining Rehabilitation.
The project demonstrated that working closely with community can achieve rehabilitation that sets new benchmarks for the resources industry.
Ngurra Kujungka, together with Newcrest Telfer, won the Community Partnership Resources Sector Award for delivering community-driven sport and recreation programs for the Martu people of the Western Desert.
The partnership has seen Ngurra Kujungka's programs expand to include sport, art, music and culture, which are used as a vehicle to drive improved outcomes in health, employment, education and community development.
