In February, Xenith was named the 2018 Australia’s Mining Monthly Mining Consultant of the Year. This was thanks to the substantial efforts of our Hunter Valley Manager, David Lennard. The judging panel cited that it was David’s commitment to not only work as a consultant but to provide training and mentoring to clients and colleagues that stood out.
On 15 May, Rebecca Jackson, Principal Geologist (Singleton Office) was presented with this award at the Future of Mining conference in Sydney by Nathan Wayne, Sales Director – Aspermont Media.
As we have done in previous years, Xenith again entered a team in the Corporate Games in the Soccer 6’s Men 30+. On the last Sunday in April, we played a number of 30 minute pool games to achieve a ranking. After this our team were ranked 3rd and advanced to the Elimination Tournament to play the 6th team. A winning performance meant the team then had to play the team ranked in second. We also won this games so progressed to the Final. The two finalists were evenly matched and after an exhausting game, the full time score was still Nil all (0-0). The game went to a penalty shootout and unfortunately that’s where we lost 3-2. All our players put in a big effort but on the day, after five games in quick succession it just wasn’t quite enough but we are very proud of the teams effort.
