About the Awards

The AAMEG Africa Awards recognise Australian explorers, miners and industry service organisations who champion a transparent, equitable and mutually beneficial mineral resources industry in Africa.

The awards are open for AAMEG members and non-members, from juniors through to majors and supermajors.

The awards represent an enduring testimonial to the visionary approaches the recipients have used to deliver long term benefits for the communities within which they operate, including improving community outcomes across employment, health, education and environmental stewardship.

2. Best Workforce and Industry Development Initiative

This award recognises a company demonstrating leadership in local workforce development.

The recipient will have demonstrated capacity building and empowerment of local people, innovation through training or workforce development, and have addressed local content requirements such as mentoring and apprenticeships.
