AAMEG is proud to announce the launch of the AAMEG Africa Awards. As the key industry body representing Australian companies engaged in the development of Africa’s resource industry, AAMEG is in an excellent position to provide recognition to those organisations that champion a transparent, equitable and mutually beneficial mineral resources industry in Africa.

AAMEG welcomes nominations from mining companies who aspire to enable the local communities surrounding their operations to be engaged meaningfully to reach their full potential, as well as contribute more broadly to the host country’s socio-economic development and sustainable growth.

This inaugural initiative kicked off in May 2019, with the aim to raise awareness of, and promote the leadership and innovation demonstrated by Australian companies operating in Africa in the areas of capacity building and workforce development.

In 2019, the AAMEG Africa Awards will acknowledge those organisations demonstrating high standards and best practice across two categories:


Best Innovation in Corporate Social Development


This award recognises an outstanding company initiative that delivers sustainable and tangible benefits to a community while demonstrating leadership in environmental, social and governance practices. The recipient will have demonstrated that they have gone beyond traditional CSR and ESG efforts, showing collaboration and engagement between the African community and government.




Best Workforce and Industry Development Initiative


This award recognises a company demonstrating leadership in African mining workforce development. The recipient will have demonstrated capacity building and empowerment of African people, innovation through training or workforce development, and have addressed local content requirements such as mentoring and apprenticeships.






Nominations closed on 31 July 2019.

A respected panel will shortlist all finalists. Nominations were open to both AAMEG members and non-members.

There was no limit to the number of nominations a company could submit, however, the same submission cannot be submitted to cover more than one category.

Finalists will be recognised and winners announced as part of the Africa Down Under (ADU) Conference Programme, followed by networking drinks in the exhibition area. The awards ceremony will be held on September 4th at 5.20pm on the main stage.

We look forward to building the “Team Australia” brand in Africa, by recognising best practices both in social responsibility and workforce development. We encourage you to attend the event as a viable measure of your successful business strategy in Africa.
