IMECNT – Taking action to build a sustainable employment opportunities for local communities. 

Tom McQueen, IMECNT Indigenous Director and Chief Pilot about to launch IMECNT’s (FAC funded)  UAVLiDAR system (Innoflight SL800 Australian made drone fitted with a USALiDAR Laser Scanner)  at Kakadu.

Indigenous Mining and Energy Consultants NT (IMECNT) are dedicated to building sustainable employment opportunities for local communities.  

IMECNT is an Indigenous-owned and managed enterprise that provides consultancy and construction services to the private and public sectors across northern Australia that started trading in 2019. 

Through FAC’s recent investment, IMECNT was able to introduce the Australian-made LiDAR drone into their services.  

The purpose of an Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) – specifically a LiDAR-enabled version – is to reduce project costs by a minimum of 25% and decrease time spent on projects by 50%. Allowing the team to spend time focusing on sustainability for future generations.  

IMECNT’s experience in the consulting and construction industries has enabled them to maintain a collaborative approach with their clients; while also incorporating education and engagement into their projects – providing an opportunity for young Indigenous Australians to obtain meaningful and sustainable employment. 

The team at IMECNT has recently undertaken a job at Kakadu. Through the employment of local Indigenous members of the Community, they have benefited from stories of Kakadu and incorporated native bush foods and Indigenous knowledge into their team.
