NSW Minerals Council
The NSW Minerals Council is the leading industry association representing the state’s minerals industry, providing a united voice for our members. There are more than 100 member companies, including the owners and operators of all major mining operations, mining operations in development, explorers and service providers.
Commodities mined in NSW include coal for energy and steel making, gold, copper, silver and minerals sands. There are also projects proposed for future mining of minerals including rare earths, lithium, nickel and more.
The NSW Minerals Council works closely with governments, industry groups and business and community leaders so member companies can continue to operate as part of a strong, responsible and sustainable mining industry in NSW, today and into the future.
We support an effective regulatory framework in which the industry can operate profitably and make a meaningful contribution to the state and the people of NSW. And as the peak industry body we promote the important role mining plays in society, the good things mining brings to NSW and the contribution of our members and mining families.
The NSW Minerals Council stands up for the mining industry and mine workers in a number of public forums and campaigns, including through its Voice for Mining network, which anyone can join at voiceformining.com.au, and it’s 10+ year partnership with the Newcastle Knights in the NRL and NRLW.
