Major mining companies on show at AIMEX

The Asia-Pacific’s International Mining Exhibition (AIMEX) is on track to deliver the largest showcase of supplier excellence when it returns to Sydney Olympic Park from August 27-29.

AIMEX is an internationally renowned exhibition and conference that will showcase over 500 leading companies from around the world. Joining these suppliers at AIMEX for the first time in the event’s history will be leading mining companies who are exhibiting at the event as part of the AIMEX Mining Pavilion.

The AIMEX Mining Pavilion was created to provide mining companies with a platform to engage with the industry, promote their initiatives as well as drive recruitment.

AIMEX is excited to announce that the pavilion will feature Centennial, Glencore, Mach Energy, Whitehaven Coal and Yancoal Australia who all contribute significantly to the mining industry, the Australian economy and the Australian workforce.

Centennial is an Australian coal mining company supplying thermal coal to the domestic and export markets. With five underground mines and a workforce of over 1700, Centennial fuels approximately 40 per cent of NSW’s coal-fired electricity. Centennial will be exhibiting on stand N129 at the AIMEX Mining Pavilion.

Exhibiting alongside Centennial is Glencore Australia, one of Australia’s largest mining companies operating in the country for over 20 years.

Glencore has grown to become a leading commodity producer and provider operating 25 mines across New South Wales, Queensland, Western Australian as well as the Northern Territory.

Glencore is also a major Australian employer with approximately 16,300 employees working across various commodities including coal, copper, nickel and many more.  Glencore Australia will exhibit at the AIMEX Mining Pavilion on stand P128.

Mach Energy develops and operates economical and efficient energy resources primarily for the international market. It is responsible for operating the Mount Pleasant thermal coal project in the Hunter Valley region of NSW which contains some of the most attractive coal resources in the area. Mach Energy assists in facilitating the transition to a low emissions economy by supplying their high quality coal to some of the world’s most advanced and high efficient power plants.

Mach Energy can be seen exhibiting with other major mining companies at the AIMEX Mining Pavilion on stand N133.

Whitehaven Coal will also be joining the AIMEX Mining Pavilion on stand P132. Whitehaven Coal is Australia’s largest independent coal producer and the leading coal producer in North West NSW.

The company operates a total of six mines in the Gunnedah Basin, producing a combination of thermal and metallurgical coal primarily exported to markets in North and South Asia. Whitehaven Coal has a workforce that is 2000-strong, with 75 per cent living in the local communities around where its operations are based.

The fifth leading mining company participating in the AIMEX Mining Pavilion is Yancoal Australia. Yancoal is Australia’s largest pure-play coal producer operating five mines and managing five others across New South Wales, Queensland and Western Australia.

Yancoal Australia is a significant employer within the mining sector with a current workforce of more than 3000 people across its operations.

Yancoal Australia sources the majority of its employees and contractors from the local communities in which it operates. Yancoal Australia will exhibit on stand N135 alongside Centennial, Glencore, Mach Energy and Whitehaven Coal.

AIMEX will not return until 2021, so it represents an unmissable opportunity to access the largest free-to-attend exhibition and conference for the mining industry. As the industry evolves, AIMEX provides a unique opportunity to source the latest products and hear insights from leading experts.
