CME Goldfields Manager Ryan O’Hanlon said the event was an opportunity to put training to the test in a method around for a very long time commencing in 1903. 

”CME is extremely proud of both the long history of mine rescue competitions in the Goldfields and the vital role they play in preparing emergency response staff at operations around the region.

“As competitors will attest, there simply isn’t the opportunity to test emergency response skills on a day-to-day basis on site against the kind of realistic scenarios that are presented in these competitions.

“The comps are also an invaluable opportunity for teams to meet their counterparts from other sites and to discuss shared learnings.

“I’d like to congratulate our best overall team from the recent Goldfields Underground Mine Emergency Rescue Team, Evolution Mining, and also all the other winners from the event. We’re very grateful to each of the competing teams, the volunteers who help made the competition possible, our generous sponsors and, of course, our hosts Evolution.”
