Minerals resources, tax, and the prosperity of all Australians

A Policy Brief from the Minerals Council of Australia - The Minerals Council of Australia (MCA) is the peak industry organisation representing Australia?s exploration, mining and minerals processing industry in its contribution to sustainable development and society.

The Australian Minerals Industry Fact Sheet

Industry Definition and Contribution: The Australian minerals industry is defined as covering the exploration and mining of minerals (including coal) and the associated minerals processing industry. The Minerals Council of Australia, in representing the industry nationally and internationally, is committed to contributing to the sustained growth and prosperity of current and future generations through the integration of sound financial management, responsible social development and effective environmental management.

Coalition climate change policy

The Coalition?s climate change policy strikes at the real intent of pricing carbon ? providing an incentive to reduce greenhouse gas emissions without negatively impacting on jobs, investment, exports and growth. The Minerals Council of Australia welcomes the shift to a policy designed to use incentives as a driver to reduce emissions rather than an approach that is pre-occupied with penalising business to raise revenue.
