The Australian Mining
Prospect Awards aim to
recognise, encourage and
reward excellence in the
Australian mining industry.
Now in its 8th year, the
awards were co-sponsored
by AIMEX for the first time
in 2011. Award winners in
15 categories were
announced at a dinner
hosted by Australian
comedian Vince
Sorrenti, which was
held in conjunction
with the tradeshow.
Bradken was proud to
sponsor a new category
in this year’s field, the
Young Achiever, which
acknowledged individual
nominees working within
the mining industry that had
shown significant promise
or reached new goals in
the start of their career.
Bradken is a strong
believer in supporting
and recognising the youth
in our industry and as
such were pleased to be
supporting this category.
The winner of this year’s
Young Achiever award was
Mark Robert Cosgrove
from Centennial Coal. He
was presented his award
by Bradken Managing
Director Brian Hodges.
Bradken products were
nominated as finalists in
two categories in 2011:
• Excellence in Mine
OH&S – T-Rex™ removal
and lifting tool system
• Innovative Mining Solutions
– Harmonise™ Integrated
Socket Equaliser (ISE)
Although unsuccessful this
year, the nomination of these
products in their infancy is an
encouraging accomplishment
for Bradken and we look
forward to returning with
further innovations at next
year’s Prospect Awards.
