The Upper Hunter Mining Dialogue has welcomed leading mining services provider Thiess as a membership partner.
Thiess and its employees are already actively involved with the Dialogue’s projects and events, participating in the School Mine Tours Program and the annual forum.
As a membership partner, Thiess will engage on key community issues and concerns in collaboration with the Dialogue’s other industry, community and government partners.
The Dialogue welcomes Thiess’ expanded involvement – as a major contributor to the Upper Hunter mining industry. Thiess’ input will be invaluable and complement the existing industry representation in the Dialogue’s working groups.
For more than 25 years, Thiess has operated in the Hunter Valley working to deliver social benefits through local employment and training, local procurement, community engagement and Indigenous affairs.
In its expanded role with the Dialogue, Thiess joins existing industry partners including Bengalla Mining Company, BHP, Glencore, MACH Energy, Malabar Coal, Muswellbrook Coal Company, Peabody Energy, the Bloomfield Group and Yancoal.
As part of its support for the Dialogue, Thiess New South Wales Operations Manager Heather Parry will join other mining industry leaders to discuss procurement opportunities for local businesses at a Dialogue and Muswellbrook Chamber of Commerce breakfast on August 13.
Other speakers scheduled for the Muswellbrook event include BHP Mt Arthur General Manager David Boshoff; C-Res Business Development Manager John Aurisch; MACH Energy Mount Pleasant Operation General Manager, Operations, Richard Bailey and Procurement Specialist Simon Collins; Bengalla Mining Company Procurement and Supply Superintendent Phillip Hollway.
