Celebrating AusIMM’s 130th anniversary

Celebrating AusIMM’s 130th anniversary

The Australasian Institute of Mining and Metallurgy (AusIMM) was founded in 1893 to advance professional practice in the resources industry for the benefit of the community.

AusIMM has been leading the way for thought-leading professionals and championing innovation in our sector ever since. 

People are at the centre of AusIMM, working across geoscience, metallurgy, engineering, environmental management and community engagement. There are few comparable organisations in Australasia whose members have contributed so much to the region’s economic and social wellbeing.

In 2023, we are proudly celebrating our 130-year anniversary, and are reaffirming our commitment to deliver world-class professional development for our members and resources professionals globally.
