Professional Employment and Remuneration

Survey Results – 2013

A cornerstone of this project was an AusIMM members’ survey – completed by nearly a quarter of our members – that provided robust data to draw upon in understanding members’ experiences. The results were striking and confirmed that minerals professionals were contending with considerable change.

Member Stories – 2013

Member Stories

AusIMM members' experiences are representative of the industry broadly: mine managers, geologists, executive recruiters, graduates and students. While their industry experiences are varied, they all spoke candidly to us in August 2013 of the critical challenges facing the sector.
