Austmine Champion of Innovation Award
This award is to recognise an individual’s contribution to innovation in the mining industry across their career.

Austmine Innovation for METS Award
Austmine prides itself on promoting innovation in METS and mining, and this award is to recognise a new innovative product, process or strategy that has been developed that truly stands out from the crowd in terms of wider implications for mining operations or the industry as a whole.
Past winners include Core Resources and Dingo
Austmine Innovation for Miners Award
This award is to acknowledge innovation being implemented, introduced or driven by mining companies. Miners are critical to driving innovation, either through internal development, fast adoption of innovative technologies or processes, or innovation in the approach to collaboration.

Craig Senger Excellence in Export Award
This award celebrates excellence in export of Mining, Equipment, Technology and Services (METS) globally. This is the fourth time this award will be presented, and it is given in memory of Austrade Trade Commissioner Craig Senger who was a champion of exporting METS and was tragically killed in a terrorist attack on a hotel in Jakarta in July, 2009. For many METS companies to truly thrive, exporting to overseas mining markets is a critical, and there is strong global awareness of Australia’s impressive mining and services capabilities.
Past winners include CSA Global and Hy-Performance Fluid Power
