PERTH Micromine, the leading provider of innovative solutions to the mining and exploration industry, has won the inaugural Austmine Craig Senger Top Exporter Award, at a gala dinner held as part of the Austmine 2009 Conference in Adelaide.

The Award was created by the Austmine Board to perpetuate the memory of Craig Senger, Senior Trade Commissioner in Jakarta, who was killed in a terrorist attack in Jakarta in July this year while carrying out his duties as one of Austrade’s mining industry team.

Intended to be a bi-annual award presented at future Austmine Conferences, the Award is open to Austmine member companies who have achieved outstanding export success over the previous two years.

In accepting the award in the presence of Craig’s widow and mother, Micromine’s Founder and Managing Director, Graeme Tuder explains “As I knew Craig well, this is an emotional moment for me. I am extremely proud of this award and would like to pay tribute to the work the Austrade mining team, in particular Craig, did to promote Australia’s mining technology and services sector.”

Mr Tuder continues “I would also like to praise the Austmine Board for instigating this award, which in my opinion will evolve into the pre-eminent award for mining services exporters, particularly as the anticipated super boom in mining is becoming a reality.”
