Mining Minds Matter
ConsMin is very proud of our Mental Health Program: Working Away Not Alone. Life challenges can become even more difficult with a FIFO lifestyle, where our mental health and wellbeing can become seriously tested.
In order for our appointed Mental Health First Aiders to be easily identified, our Woodie and West Perth operations have recently introduced unique work shirts for all mental health first aiders so they can be easily spotted to assist with mental health support or crisis.
At a glance it is a fun and colourful shirt, but it is a simple tool aimed at starting the difficult conversations and reducing the stigma that continues to surround mental health.
At work and at home, lets support open and honest conversations.
International Women's Day Event
This year ConsMin held our International Women’s Day Event on May 20. Our event was held at our Woodie Woodie Mine Site and included guests from our West Perth Office, Woodie Woodie Mine Site, Warrawagine Cattle Co & Wallal Downs. As the weather in the Pilbara can be quite temperamental in March, we wanted to ensure weather would not disrupt visitors being able to attend the event.
We were lucky enough to have Millie Allbon and Jillian Formentin from the The Hunger Project Australia facilitate two sessions on Unearthing Women’s Leadership followed by a networking lunch fully catered in house by our newly formed catering and village services team.
A huge thank you to everyone that helped make this day possible, for all our women who attended the day, some from over 400kms away and to The Hunger Project Australia who designed an inspiring, engaging and interaction session which added so much value to us. ConsMin is proud to value diversity and host these events for not only our women but within our community too. We hope you enjoy the slideshow which features some photos and information about the event.
AMEC Annual Awards
ConsMin's Quoll !Quoll program won the AMEC (Association of Mining and Exploration Companies) Environment Award in December 2020.
The program was developed through partnership of the IT and Environment Departments and resulted in the selection of a Data Science Intern from Innovations Central Perth and Curtin Uni. The intern, Monique Guest created a software program (Quoll !Quoll) that utilises machine learning to automatically identify the Northern Quoll in camera trap images, saving hours of work for the ConsMin Environment Team and our specialist ecologists.
A huge congratulations to all the teams involved on this achievement. This is a great display of the ConsMin values of Teamwork, Simplicity, Dedication and Innovation.
Each November ConsMin hosts a series a quiz nights at the Woodie tavern to give employees and contractors an end of year celebration as well as raising money for the Royal Flying Doctor Service (RFDS).
This year, with the help from suppliers donating prizes for the quiz and auction, along with entry fees and raffles, we were able to raise over $16,000 for the RFDS.
ConsMin would like to extend a big thank you to all of our suppliers who helped out, as well as all of our employees and contractors who participated in the event. Congratulations to all those who went home with prizes.
