About this Event

Larnie Mackay, Digital Transformation: Underground Project Lead for Anglo American in Moranbah took the inaugural Minerals Council of Australia Maptek Women in Resources Technological Innovation Award.

The judges selected Larnie for her innovation and perseverance in leading the development of the first, and so far, only, electronic tablet device certified for unrestricted use in underground coal mining in Australia.

"I keep saying to my daughters, there's no such thing as the word 'can't', there is always a way,” said Larnie.

"Sometimes being a woman in a male dominated industry can have its hurdles, but the mining industry is very supportive and the support I've got from my underground guys has been phenomenal."

Come and hear more about Larnie's career journey and how she dealt with the challenges along the way.
