The Australasian Institute of Mining and Metallurgy (AusIMM) has tapped a new president for 2023 with the election of Nicole Brook.

nicole brook 01 152x200Brook, who will take over her seat effective 1 January 2023, is a mining engineer that began her career as an underground miner. Three decades later and after technical and consulting roles, she transitioned to a leadership role with Glencore, where she headed a team of resources professionals responsible for business development, project assessment and technical governance of mining operations.

Brook has served as a member of the JORC Committee, chair of the AusIMM Hunter Region Branch, and sat on several industry advisory boards for tertiary mining education. In 2018, she was named Exceptional Woman in NSW Mining at the NSW Minerals Council awards and was selected for the 100 Global Inspirational Women in Mining.

She was first elected to the board in 2021 and has served on the nominations committee, policy and advocacy committee and remuneration committee. She is chair of the Future Workforce Working Group and chair of the Joint AIG/AusIMM Competent Person Review Taskforce.

“It is an absolute honour to be elected president for 2023 and I am proud to be representing our members in this leadership role. I am deeply committed to the purpose of the Institute, to advance the sciences applying to the minerals industry for the benefit of the community,” Brook said.

“I believe no other organisation can bring together, in an independent way, the scientific know-how, professional integrity and highest industry standards to address the complex challenges our sector is facing.  I am looking forward to working closely with our members, management team and Board as we tackle these challenges, especially in creating tangible plans to address the critical areas of future workforce and social responsibility.”

The AusIMM board thanked outgoing president Dave Clark for his dedication and contributions to the group, especially during his presidential term of 2021-2022.

Clark added: “On behalf of the board, congratulations to Nicole and I look forward to working with her over this transition period, and then continuing to work together and with the entire Board to deliver AusIMM’s strategy in 2023.”
