With much joy and merriment - that's our Christmas wrap!

In November and December, the annual Christmas celebrations were held across Glencore's North Queensland operations.

With Disney the theme for our Townsville Operations' Christmas party, many of our favourite characters were on show, with the Best Dressed Award going to Thomas Pennington and his family. An animal farm, face painting, rock climbing and a visit from Ranger Dan kept the kids entertained.

Ernest Henry Mining celebrated with scrumptious seafood feasts catering for the different rosters with heaps of good cheer to round out their celebrations.

Jumping castles, gladiator jousting and a spectacular fireworks display dazzled the crowd in Mount Isa. A visit from the 'Man in Red,' who rode in on his motorcycle, ensured there were plenty of smiling faces and great excitement among the children.

Christmas is a very special time when we come together to give thanks to friends, family, our community and celebrate all that's good in the world.

It's also a wonderful time to show our appreciation and recognise the hard work of our employees over the course of the year.

We wish everyone a safe and joyous festive season. Happy holidays!
