ALS was honoured to receive the Recognition for Services to the Industry Award, and applauds the support provided to the resources sector in Australia by Mrs Rinehart, Executive Chairman of the Hancock Prospecting Group, and the Hancock Prospecting Group. Mining and related industries are critically important to the Australian economy, and the support provided by both the Hancock Prospecting Group and Mrs Rinehart, is pivotal for advancement in the sector.
Steve Finlayson, ALS Executive Manager Business Development was on hand to accept the award from HPPL executives from the Hancock Prospecting Group, presenting on behalf of Mrs Rinehart. Mr Finlayson commented the award was accepted “on behalf of all ALS employees, especially those who have made the choice to live and work in regional and rural centres, to provide local support for our mining districts”.
ALS graciously accepts the award, and is very pleased to donate it to the worthy cause of the Cancer Council Queensland. The Cancer Council Queensland is recognised by both ALS and Mrs Gina Rinehart as an important charity known for its continued and unrelenting efforts to realise a cancer free future.
Cancer Council Queensland spokesperson Katie Clift thanked ALS for their generosity.
“Community support is instrumental to our work and the donation will be invested in vital research, prevention programs and support services.
“Importantly, this donation will allow us to continue our focus on improving regional cancer survival and in supporting regional Queenslanders with accessing lifesaving treatment and care through our accommodation lodges for regional patients,” Ms Clift said.
ALS would also like to extend its congratulations to Rhonda O’Sullivan (Geological Superintendent) from Glencore’s Mount Isa Mines, who was presented with the Young Professional award. Together the two national mining and related industries awards totalled $50,000.
