We are an industry that is critical to, and at the forefront of underpinning Australia’s prosperity and our living standards. Without mining, you wouldn’t have electricity or the 35 different minerals available that make up your mobile phone. Imagine that, a world without electricity, or phones, and iPads, or computers. Our industry has also built large parts of Australia. We have brought investment, opportunities, infrastructure, city conveniences and jobs into some of the most remote, rugged and poor places in our country.
