Second annual Meeting of the Mines to be held in Cloncurry: 11 to 13 September 2024


The second annual MEETING OF THE MINES in Cloncurry will be held from 11 to 13 September 2024. As the Capital of the North West Minerals Province, Cloncurry is perfectly placed to host this three-day industry conference focused on the future of the mining industry in the region.


The inaugural conference featured a powerhouse lineup of speakers, key conversations on unlocking the region’s value, informative panels highlighting critical areas of concern, and great conversations in and around the conference with industry heavyweights.


The event prompted collaboration and innovation between a diverse range of decision-makers, leaders and experts with a focus on delivering practical outcomes and benefits for the sector and the region. .


The value of the event can be seen in some of the key outcomes from the 2023 Meeting of the Mines, including.

  • Ozzie Surveys relocating to Cloncurry;
  • APP Group establishing an office in Cloncurry;
  • SunWater making the move to establish four full-time staff in Cloncurry with accommodation and office space from July 2024;
  • Council leasing 4 x houses off the plan at its Perkins Street housing development;
  • Road User Agreements secured with Capricorn Copper and Chinova;
  • A Road User Agreement pilot program under development with the Dept. State Development.


In 2023 the speaker lineup was led by Evolution Mining CEO and MD, Lawrie Conway, who detailed the $1 billion investment into the Ernest Henry copper-gold mine, the doubling of the mine’s life, why Ernest Henry and North-West Queensland remains so important and the commitment to sustainable benefits. South 32 Chief Operating Officer Jason Economidis focused on creating long-term stakeholder prosperity, and Chairman of Metals Acquisition Corporation and Deputy Chair of Strike Energy Ltd, Neville Power, outlined mining investment in the North West.


In the tradition of Cloncurry’s legendary outback hospitality, Meeting of the Mines also included unique social experiences for delegates that will be repeated in 2024. Delegates enjoyed a one-off conference dinner menu served by super chef Miguel Maestro and took up the invitation to join in on Cloncurry’s Beat the Heat Festival, which included a street party, outback races and more.


Cloncurry has always been visionary – it’s the Outback Queensland town that could, and does. It sits 780 kilometres west of Townsville, 120 kilometres east of Mount Isa and 1700 kilometres north west of Brisbane in the centre of Australia’s resources cache.
