Last week Terra Rosa CRM attended the Association of Mining and Exploration Companies (AMEC) Convention at the Crown Perth. AMEC is Australia’s peak industry body for the mining and exploration industry. At the Convention we had the opportunity to network with some key industry professionals from the mining and exploration industry and hear about new development projects that are envisaged all across Australia. Exhibitors’ showcases covered a range of topics for the mining and exploration sector including social and environmental aspects.
We were excited about the interest that investors, speakers and other exhibitors took in the samples of work that we were showcasing at our stall. Our GIS expert Glenn Chisholm had flown over from Victoria for the event and was kept busy engaging with stall visitors who were interested in our 3D prints of aboriginal engravings from the Pilbara.
Many networkers at the conference had heard of Terra Rosa CRM’s involvement with groups across Western Australia and we were happy to have the opportunity to share our ideas in regards to the strong engagement that we have with 23 indigenous groups across the Murchison-Gascoyne, Western Desert, Goldfields and Pilbara regions.
We also took the opportunity to attend the presentation held by the Department of Aboriginal Affairs (DAA) regarding the Aboriginal Heritage Act Amendment Bill (2014) and were happy to see the level of engagement and interest in the Bill that introduces some new administrative procedures at the DAA.
Finally, we would like to extend a warm thank you to AMEC for a great two day opportunity to network and showcase our work.
