The AIQEF Auctions

For many years the AIQEF auction was held in conjunction with Institute of Quarrying Australia’s national conference and the Construction Materials Industry Conference.  These were normally live auctions, but with the changes to the structure and length of these conferences the Foundation is introducing on-line auctions, commencing in October 2016.

The AIQEF Auctions have contributed in excess of $1 million to the funds available for the Foundation to make grants for industry training.  The income from each year’s auctions goes directly towards grants in the financial year of the auction.

You can participate in the AIQEF on-line auction by:

  • Clicking on the ‘View Auction’ icon, selecting a lot you are interested in and view its details;
  • Select 'Notify me if I am out-bid' so you can be kept up to date with the status of your bid;
  • The first time you place a bid you will be asked to register as a participant in the auction and to provide your contact details; and
  • Once you have done this your bid will be submitted.


Condition of participation in AIQEF auctions

By registering and participating in AIQEF Auctions you agree that if your bid is successful you will pay your bid amount to the AIQEF within 90 days of the closing date of the auction.


The next AIQEF auction will be held at the 2021 IQA Conference, October 6-8, 2021. More details to come.
