A mining and multi-product exploration company in Australia, with a portfolio covering the main technology metals and rare earths, has been awarded the mining operation of the year, as it fought in production and continued to play a key role in the Employment provision.

Alkane Resources received the "Mining Operation of the Year" at the NSW Minerals Council Supplier Awards for the work it has done at the Tomingley gold mine in west central New South Wales.

The prize comes after a difficult start for 2017, due to the sharp drop in production, which produced 69,000 ounces of gold, revenues of A $ 117.3 million and pre-tax profits and non-recurring items of A $ 17, 1 million.

"The mine employs premises, many of which we have trained to be part of the operation, and we have also given importance to the local environment and community events as part of our operations," said Alkane Managing Director, Nic Earner.

The award recognized the company's achievements in:

Improvement of the fleet and use of a mobile crushing plant to improve performance and productivity.

Continuous drilling to optimize the focus on high grade ore.

Improvements in local infrastructure, including improvement of the community hall, sealing of village streets, new works in the Tomingley Racecourse & Recreation Reserve and water supply to the village from a water supply line water well.

Upskilling of the local workforce and close working relationships with contractors.
