AAMEG WELCOMES MAXGEO AS NEW PLATINUM MEMBER
Perth, Western Australia: The Australia-Africa Minerals & Energy Group is pleased to welcome geological data management specialist maxgeo as its newest AAMEG Platinum Member for 2021.
With headquarters in Western Australia and offices in London, Johannesburg and Vancouver, maxgeo is a global force in data collection and management, enabling mining and exploration clients to make smarter data-driven decisions.
The first data management specialist to join AAMEG, maxgeo’s partnership reflects the growing sophistication of mineral operations in Africa and the diversity of Australian interests on the continent.
“As AAMEG’s newest platinum member, maxgeo brings something a bit different to the organisation: a company that operates in the software and data-housing industry,” says William Witham, CEO of AAMEG. “It’s an area that will undergo rapid growth in the coming years.”
Given the company’s strong focus on information sharing and goal to ‘empower the exploration and mining world with improved business insights through smart connected systems’, maxgeo’s vision is in close alignment with AAMEG’s member culture.
“We’re focussed on supporting mining companies to run the best data management systems possible,” says Viv Preston, Director of maxgeo.
The company is already dominant in Africa, with operations in around 35 countries, and Preston hopes that the partnership with AAMEG will help to build relationships in the region.
“It’s about being able to help mining and exploration companies in a developing continent,” says Preston, noting that associations with groups like AAMEG make things easier for Australian businesses and locals alike.
“When going into west Africa, for example,” he says, “organisations can join an AAMEG conference to network, but also to spread awareness. It’s a collaborative thing.”
maxgeo looks for ways to support local communities in Africa and Australia, providing data management tools where needed by local not-for-profit organisations.
maxgeo joins Base Resources, Lycopodium, Paydirt, Perenti and Perseus Mining as platinum members whose invaluable contributions assist AAMEG in advocating for the interests of Australian mineral and energy operations in Africa.
“Being an AAMEG platinum member means much more than making a financial commitment to the organisation,” explains Witham. “It also demonstrates an underlying support for Australian companies operating in the African resources sector and a willingness to help others to achieve sustainable, successful outcomes.”
“AAMEG Platinum members are investing in the future of the industry and contributing to the ongoing development of current and future sustainable and ethical resource projects in Africa.”
