Community Excellence Awards 2008 - Wilpinjong Mine

Wilpinjong wins at Community Excellence Awards

Wilpinjong won the People’s Choice Award at the NSW Minerals Council's 2008 annual Environment and Community Excellence Awards and was highly commended in the community category for its successful partnership with the North East Wiradjuri under the Native Title agreement.

The annual awards are an opportunity to acknowledge leadership, innovation and commitment for environmental management and community engagement. The range and breadth of projects being undertaken by individual companies – from the largest multinational to small juniors - are quite staggering and cover revegetating min sites, protecting native species, reducing water use, engaging with the local community to ensure long term sustainability of communities and working with local Indigenous communities to preserve their heritage under the principles of the Native Title Agreement.
