IQA General Manager, Paul Sutton

On behalf of the Institute of Quarrying Australia’s members I convey my thanks for your promotion and support of the 2013 IQA Conference held in Townsville.

The Mining Advocate was very responsive to our needs pre, during and post conference. I value the high level of professionalism afforded to me by your staff during every step of the process. Meeting deadlines for such a national event on our calendar can be quite challenging but I am pleased to note that this was not an issue with our partnership.

I look forward to your continued involvement in our annual Health and Safety Seminar for Quarries and Small Mines. This year the seminar will be held in Townsville on 23 April 2014. Your coverage of this annual event provides an insight to our members who are unable to attend due to geographic isolation issues experienced by some of our members in North Queensland. I receive excellent feedback from a suite of members on your annual coverage of this event. It is wonderful to receive feedback from members in Western Australia on a North Queensland event! It is most surprising how a Queensland and Northern Territory publication gets into the hands of people living in the other Australian States and Territories.

I value our working relationship and look forward to working with you and your team in continued partnership on delivering the best outcomes for our members.


Managing Director and Principle Consultant CSM Safety Services, Craig Stewart

I would like to take this opportunity to thank you and your staff for your very professional service and valuable assistance that you have provided me and my business over the past four (4) years.

I have been running a number of advertisements in your publications over these years and they have resulted in numerous successes for my business which has resulted in requests for services from the mining and mining support industries about the local region and in the wider inter-state markets. The marketing strategy that you have designed for me has been extremely successful in improving my exposure to the Queensland industrial base.

I would especially like to thank your editorial staff, who at all times have been extremely courteous, professional and approachable during all of my dealings with them. Their service has always resulted in a very high standard of printed media that clearly delivers my services’ intent.

I have always found yourself as very approachable and as a person that has a very sound practical knowledge of business marketing practices; and all your guidance has resulted in very good business outcomes for me.

I look forward to the continuing relationship between my business and The Mining Advocate and our continuing friendship.


Britrac Managing Director, Brian Steele

I would like to take the opportunity to thank you and your team for all the work you have done over the past number of years, in helping my company with advertising.

We have found that the advertisements and editorials we had done has given my company great exposure into the relevant markets. We have decided that The Mining Advocate is our choice of advertising vehicle in which we wish to continue with.

We are impressed with the level of service and quality of the final product.

We are looking forward to working with you further.

The North Queensland Rescue Helicopter (NQ Rescue) would like to thank the Mining Advocate for all the generous support they provide to our service.

The Mining Advocate is a well recognised and respected leader in the industry and we are fortunate to have their support and backing for such a vital service.
