Awards for Excellence

Resources Sector Awards for Excellence

As Western Australia’s lead agency regulating the State’s resources sector, the Department of Energy, Mines, Industry Regulation and Safety (DEMIRS) is committed to ensuring the sector is developed and managed responsibly and sustainably for the benefit of all Western Australians.

The annual Resources Sector Awards for Excellence brings together the Golden Gecko Award and the Community Partnership Resources Sector Award.

The award program was established by the department to demonstrate and acknowledge that our nationally significant industry is not only sustainable, but also achieves the environmental and community balance expected of industry today.

DEMIRS has chosen to pause its Resources Sector Awards for Excellence recognition program in 2024 to explore new directions that better reflect and acknowledge Western Australia’s resources sector.

DEMIRS acknowledges all previous outstanding finalists and recipients of the Resources Sector Awards for Excellence.
