AMC Consultants was awarded the Mining Consultant of the Year Award at the Future of Mining Conference Awards Ceremony on 25 March 2019. Felicia Mackenzie, General Manager Corporate Development, represented AMC on the night. The other companies that took home awards on the night were Northern Star Resources, Vega, Mader Group, Core Resources Pty Ltd, Andrew Dittmann from MEC Mining, OceanaGold, Movus, ReRisk, and Bis.
AMC was awarded the prestigious title for having secured the most new assignments for the qualifying period, with a sizeable number of these projects continuing into 2019. The quality of work and its long-term relationships with its clients is evidenced by the fact that 75% of AMC’s current business is repeat business. The increased demand for its services has also led to a 20% increase in AMC’s number of technical staff.
In addition to helping its clients achieve and exceed their goals for 2018, AMC was also celebrated for its contribution to the industry more broadly. This included sponsoring ten conferences/industry causes as well as continuing to sponsor the prestigious Melbourne Mining Club luncheons. AMC has also shared its knowledge and expertise by presenting five papers and participating or exhibiting at 23 conferences globally. AMC was also one of the consultancies involved in the design and delivery of the AusIMM’s Online Professional Certificate in JORC Code Reporting, with five of its experts contributing. In 2017-2018, and again in 2018-2019, AMC also participated in Austmine’s Women in STEM: METS Career Pathway Program, which provides a direct route for female STEM students to gain work experience and employment within the METS industry.
