Keynote speaker:
Matt Latimore

We are excited to announce that founder and president of M Resources, Matt Latimore, as our keynote speaker for the October Industry Briefing on October 8th. Matt will be sharing the background and journey of the small miner, how it's transformed from mine to market, information on the Millennium and Mavis Downs mines projects, and will share his insights on the metallurgical coal market. 

Matt is the Founder and President of M Resources Pty Ltd, a company he established in 2011 for marketing, investment and trading of steelmaking raw materials, with a focus on metallurgical coal. M Resources has shipped more than 400 cargoes of metallurgical coal as principle to global steel mills and currently has the exclusive marketing rights for Stanmore Resources (SMR) and Bowen Coking Coal (BCC) in Australia and Allegiance (AHQ) New Elk mine in the US. Through MetRes, a company 50% owned by M Resources, Matt also recently purchased the Millennium and Mavis Downs coal mines from Peabody. Matt is a Non-Executive Director of Bowen Coking Coal. Prior to founding M Resources, Matt was General Manager Sales and Marketing for Wesfarmers Curragh coal for 10 years, responsible for global sales to steel makers and power utilities, rail and port and finance functions. Matt was a Director of Curragh Coal Sales. Prior to that, Matt held various positions with Mitsui & Co Coal Department. 

M Resources recently announced that it had executed contracts with Australian Mining Rehabilitation (AMR) and MCC Group Pty Ltd (MCC). Both companies are local businesses in Central Queensland, and their appointments will mean more local employment opportunities. AMR will provide opencut mining services at the Millennium and Mavis Downs metallurgical coal mine. M Mining has also successfully executed an agreement with MCC Group to provide early works to assist with mine dewatering and pit preparation works ahead of mining commencement.
