Nominations

There are 12 categories for inductee awards:

Please let us have your nominations for people who should be considered. We will be looking to induct 12 people (and it can be a posthumous award) into this hall of fame. International Mining has people who have been in the mining industry for some 40 years each and we can think of many worthy recipients, and we hope that you can think of many more around the world. This is the only Hall of Fame recognising the global innovators in our industry – some have been forgotten already, let’s honour those who so deserve the accolades before too much more time passes. Nominations that fail this year will automatically pass into the 2017 voting. Once the nominations are in, the voting will be undertaken by a college of some 100 experts and leaders in the fields of exploration, mining and processing. To ensure impartiality, none of them will be employees of supplier companies (but their nominations are very welcome).
