30 September - 2 October 2020

Invitation from the 2020 National Mining Games Organising Committee Chair

On behalf of AusIMM and the University of Queensland, I would like to formally invite you to the National Mining Games for 2020.

The 2020 National Mining Games, to be held in Brisbane following the AusIMM New Leaders Conference poses to be a great event in the 2020 calendar. With more interest than ever before, the National Mining Games will include women’s, mixed, men’s and for the first time Alumni teams competing in different events for prizes to be awarded at the Gala Dinner and Awards Ceremony on the evening of the final day.

We look forward to seeing as many people as possible to join in this special week for something that will be exciting and memorable.
