@ The Coalface is back and we are bigger and better than ever before.
This year we are excited on our new expansion. From Mudgee to Morisset, from Narrabri to Newcastle, our magazine will be popping up in lots of new places every month as we broaden our reach and our audience.
Hello to all our new readers and welcome. If you are like us and believe the mining industry gets an unfair negative rap, then you’ve come to the right place to find all the positive stories that deserve to be told.
From the contributions it makes to our communities, to the hardworking people that come to work every day and booster our economy, to the leaps and bounds our industry is making in innovation, safety and improving environmental standards, every month you’ll learn a little more about our world class industry. Plus, we hope you will have a good laugh or two!
To start off the new year, this month we feature the Westpac Rescue Helicopter Service, an organisation that is vital to our communities, and one that is strongly supported by the mining industry. From workplace giving to industry partnerships to hard working volunteers, we are proud to be a part of an industry that helps to keep this amazing service in the air and saving lives.
Our hope is that for everyone who reads our magazine it will help them to see our industry in a new light. Sure, it’s played a role in the environmental problems our world is facing, but it is also working to help mitigate and solve them. But more than that, it is made up of thousands of hard working and dedicated people that are the backbones of our communities. Those people deserve not only to be recognised, but to be celebrated.
We hope you enjoy the first 2023 edition of @ The Coalface!
