Women in Resources Awards for Barkly miner
THE first woman to operate a digger at the
McArthur River Mine has taken out the top
gong in her category at this year’s NT Women
in Resources Awards.
Leigh Mott (pictured) was named winner of the Out-
standing Tradeswomen, Operator or Trainee category
at the awards dinner in Darwin this week.
The Operator and Emergency Response Team vice-
captain, who joined MRM six years ago has worked
her way through the ranks, becoming the mine’s first
woman to operate a digger.
Leigh’s work as part of the emergency response team
has allowed her to shine among her peers, rising to the
position of vice captain and giving her the opportunity
to give back to the community.
The Women in Resources Awards celebrate the
achievements of women, men and companies who
make outstanding contributions toward a more diverse
MRM General Manager Sam Strohmayr said he was
proud of the company’s record of creating opportuni-
ties for women.
“Leigh is an inspiration to both men and women at
MRM,” he said.
“She puts 100 per cent into everything she does and
will be a great ambassador for the Territory at the na-
tional awards in Launceston in August.”
A WOMAN was charged
with assault after a man
turned up at the hospital
with knife wounds to his
hands, knee and arm in
the early hours of Saturday
Superintendent Kerry Hoskins
from Tennant Creek Police said
the woman was arrested shortly
afterwards and police also found
the weapon she allegedly used.
The 38-year-old appeared in the
Tennant Creek Local Court on
Monday charged with assaulting
a person who suffered harm and
threatening with firearm/weapon.
The man’s injuries were non-life
IN a Territory first, the public will be allowed to ask questions
about the Budget which will then be put to government ministers.
Territorians, businesses and organisations will be able to email questions to
the Budget Estimates Committee.
The move comes as the members of the Country Liberals and four out of
the five independent members decided to refuse to ask questions during the
Estimates Hearings after Labor halved the number of hours available for ques-
tions from 60 to 30.
They said they would submit written questions instead and so the Government
has invited members of the public to do the same.
Leader of Government Business Natasha Fyles said the MLAs were letting
each and every one of their constituents down by saying they wouldn’t turn up.
“The CLP and Independents have proven themselves redundant as an opposi-
tion so we are inviting Territorians to do it for them,” she said.
“Territorians, Territory businesses and community groups will now be able
to ask robust and probing questions of Government.
“The NT Government has made significant changes to the parliamentary
system to make it more transparent. Allowing the estimates committee to
scrutinise Government’s annual reports, which track the Government’s delivery
of programs against the Budget is an important part.”
Questions on the Budget can be submitted by email to: budget.questions@

Minister for Health Nata-

the biggest social issue in
the community, the NT
Government was deter-
mined to address alcohol-
related crime, violence,
injury and death.
“The Territory Labor
Government has made
it very clear that we will
tackle the crime and vi-
olence cause by prob-

abuse,” she said.
“We have listened to Ter-
ritorians’ concerns about
the negative impact of
alcohol abuse and we are
Ms Fyles said she urged
Territorians to have their
say on alcohol policy.
“This is a whole-of-NT
issue and we need to hear
from all sectors to develop
the best policies possible,”
Former Chief Justice
Trevor Riley will lead the
review panel which will
use information gathered
during consultations to
advise the Government on
reforms that could be con-
sidered in the NT Liquor
