Alkane’s Casey Martin has been presented with the Outstanding Trade, Operator or Technician Award at the 2022 NSW Women in Mining Awards.
Casey joined Tomingley Gold Operations in 2021 as an Underground Bogger Operator, breaking new ground as the first woman underground at the operation.
Casey was also recognised for her dedication to encouraging more women to take on non-traditional roles in the mining industry.
NSW Minerals Council CEO Stephen Galilee congratulated all of the winners and finalists.
“There are many incredible women in our NSW mining industry and these Awards celebrate their achievements in a range of fields,” Mr Galilee said.
“From technology and innovation to engineering and trades, as well as in operational roles and running businesses, our award winners highlight the opportunities for women in mining, and showcase the career paths available in our sector.
The winners in the five award categories will be entered into the Women in Resources National Awards.
