Ceylon Graphite was awarded the Asia Pacific Exploration Mining Company of the Year Award at the Mines and Money Asia Conference held in Hong Kong.
In a statement, Ceylon Graphite acknowledged that it was a great honour to be recognised by its peers in the Asian mining community in just its second year of operation.
Bharat Parashar, Ceylon Graphite Chief Executive Officer states “Being nominated for these awards is a real honour for the Company and is tangible recognition for all our employees who have worked so hard to achieve so much, in such a short period of time.”
“This award speaks directly to the quality of the extensive exploration work the Company has carried out in Sri Lanka over the past year,” he added. “It is recognition by the mining community of the Company's efforts to develop our mining properties at an accelerated pace and with the lowest cost.”
The annual awards recognise only the most accomplished mining companies in the region. There were many contenders for the Exploration Mining Company of the Year and six that were short-listed for the award.
