The annual MNN Awards recognise the Australian mining sector’s standout performers for the previous financial year. The 2023 MNN Awards will focus on FY23 across four categories: Deal of the Year, Explorer of the Year, CEO of the Year and Emerging Leader of the Year.
Nominations are submitted by the industry which allows the MNN team to come up with a shortlist of finalists. A panel of industry experts then decide on the winners. Trophies will be presented to the winners at the inaugural MiningNews Select event on 18 September at Pan Pacific Perth.
The awards will recognise outstanding companies and individuals across the following categories:
