Please find below a press release in regards to Straterra formally absorbing the New Zealand Minerals Industry Association (NZMIA):
Straterra, the industry group representing the New Zealand minerals sector, has formally merged with the New Zealand Minerals Industry Association (NZMIA).
“This is a further important step toward consolidating the mineral industry sector into one voice, and to achieving more effective representation for our sector,” Straterra CEO Chris Baker said today.
Under an agreement between Straterra and the NZMIA, Straterra will take over NZMIA work and membership, and NZMIA will be dissolved.
“NZMIA holds much history and knowledge, and we welcome NZMIA members into Straterra. Mining faces many challenges in New Zealand, and it is important that we manage our scarce resources efficiently, and present our industry professionally. This agreement helps us do that,” Mr Baker said.
