Founding Partners

Victorian Government

John Krbaleski (Acting Head Resources)

As a founding IMARC member, the Victorian Government is continuing to partner with AusIMM, AustMine and Mines and Money to organise an international conference building on Victoria's strength as global centre for mining and resources.

We're thrilled to play a significant role in supporting the conference as part of our drive to connect local businesses with global opportunities.

We're also supporting the sector more broadly by initiating activities to reduce investment risk, making geological data available to explorers, opening more areas to potential minerals exploration and appropriately regulating activities to ensure community confidence in the sector.

I look forward to this year's conference and wish IMARC delegates from Victoria, interstate and overseas every success in their endeavours later this year.


Christine Gibbs Stewart (Chief Executive Officer)

Austmine is very proud to be a Founding Partner of IMARC, and we look forward to welcoming everyone in 2019.

We have seen the event grow in size and importance, and this year will be IMARC’s best year yet. The line-up of speakers is truly impressive, and it is very rare to have so many mining leaders all under one roof. Their participation is a testament to the excellent reputation which IMARC has established globally. As the leading industry body for the Australian Mining Equipment, Technology and Services (METS) sector, we are proud to say that our members lead the way in innovative solutions and world class best practice. We will continue to champion the Australian METS sector to be the best in the world, and IMARC gives us an important platform to do this.

We look forward to a great conference and seeing everyone at IMARC.


Stephen Durkin (Chief Executive Officer)

AusIMM is a proud founding partner of IMARC and we look forward to welcoming you to Melbourne in October.

AusIMM is the peak body representing resources professionals at the cutting edge of best practice and thought leadership. Our professionals are shaping the future of the resources sector, and throughout IMARC 2019 you will find AusIMM members sharing their expertise and insights.

As a world-renowned event, IMARC will connect resources professionals and industry leaders from around the globe.

On behalf of AusIMM, I want to thank you for your support in making this such an outstanding conference.

Mines & Money

Anita Richards (General Manager - Asia Pacific)

As a Founding Partner of IMARC and conference host, our team have been working hard to secure many of the world's key mining CEOs and investors for 2019. In its 6th year, IMARC looks to have achieved one of the strongest ever seen speaker line-ups at a dedicated minerals industry conference; and we’re only half way through.

We look forward to welcoming over 7,000 attendees, 250+ mining companies and 400+ investors, from over 100 nations to Melbourne this year. With the "top shelf "of industry leaders in the mix, and over 100 hours of networking available throughout the week, IMARC 2019 is not to be missed.
