Minerals Council of Australia
MTEC collects enrolment and destination data from minerals departments across the disciplines of mining engineering, minerals geoscience, and metallurgy at partner universities.
As you know, the Minerals Council of Australia represents small, medium and large firms engaged in the exploration, extraction and processing of minerals and energy resources. The minerals industry is Australia’s largest exporter, with exports of $175 billion in the last year.
Mr Chairman, thank you for the opportunity to meet with the Committee today. The minerals sector welcomes the Paris agreement as an important step forward in securing a durable path to progressively lower global greenhouse gas emissions.
The minerals sector warmly welcomes the appointment of Ian Macfarlane as the Chief Executive of the Queensland Resources Council, effective mid-November.
Protecting existing, and encouraging, new minerals investment across regional Victoria requires strategic land use planning, regulatory stability and strong local leadership.
