The Australasian Institute of Mining and Metallurgy (AusIMM) provides services to professionals engaged in all facets of the global minerals sector and is based in Carlton, Victoria, Australia.[1]

History[edit]

The Institute had its genesis in 1893 with the formation in Adelaide of the Australasian Institute of Mining Engineers[2] drawing its inspiration from the success of the American Institute of Mining Engineers,[3] and some impetus from the Mine Managers Association of Broken Hill.[4] Office-holders were equally from South Australia and "The Hill", where the Institute established its headquarters. This approach to the foundation of a federal organization was welcomed in mining districts of other Australian colonies.[5][6] and branches were formed in Broken Hill, the Thames Goldfield (New Zealand), Ballarat, and elsewhere. Succeeding annual conferences were held at Ballarat,[7] Hobart, Broken Hill and other mining centres. The 1926 conference was held in Otago, New Zealand.[8]

In 1896 its headquarters were removed from Broken Hill to Melbourne,[9] and in June 1919 adopted its present name.[10] In 1954 the Institute applied for a Royal Charter,[11] granted 1955.

The AusIMM represents more than 13 500 members drawn from all sections of the industry and supported by a network of branches and societies in Australasia and internationally.[12]
