Thank you to Federation University for hosting the AusIMM Central Victoria Regional Symposium and to the students for putting on a great breakfast. Such great facilities that most likely would not have existed without the Victorian Gold Rush. The history of mining in the area is remarkable. Very interesting to hear about Madame Midas (Alice Cornwall), an inspiring women in any day. Great opportunity to network and introduce MEKS Solutions www.MEKSsolutions.com. Our capabilities include project management, maintenance, contract management, operational support and workshop facilitation based on our diverse experience. It was also good to see companies like Gekko, Castlemaine Goldfields, Fosterville mine and other contractors in the industry being a part of the emerging future. A key takeaway from the symposium for me was to collaborate. As only through embracing smart ideas together can we transform our world, lower energy and provide faster returns.
