Local woman recognised at Mining Awards

Casey Martin from Alkane Resources – Tomingley Gold Operations has been awarded the NSW Women in Mining Outstanding Trade, Operator or Technician.

Member for the Dubbo electorate Dugald Saunders congratulated Casey on her achievement, which was announced last night at the NSW Women in Mining Awards 2022.

“The NSW Women in Mining Awards recognise and celebrate the achievements of leading women in the NSW mining industry, many of whom I was able to meet at the presentation last night” Mr Saunders said.

“Coming up against three other women in her category, this is a fantastic result for Casey.

“Casey has been a great role model and champion for women in mining, advocating for overdue promotions for herself and other women, while also encouraging women to take on non-traditional roles in mining.”

The NSW Women in Mining Awards are given in six categories, including:

  • Outstanding trade, operator or technician;
  • Excellence in diversity programs and performance;
  • Technical innovation;
  • Gender diversity champion;
  • Exceptional young woman;
  • Exceptional woman.

Casey will go on to represent NSW at the Women in Resources National Awards, hosted by the Minerals Council of Australia, in Canberra later in the year.
