Submission to the Victorian State Environment Protection Policy (Waters) Review

The Minerals Council of Australia has a strong record in establishing leading practice in environmental minerals development.  Members of the MCA have a long standing commitment to sustainable development including the responsible stewardship of natural resources.   

The Victorian minerals industry is not a significant water (surface water and groundwater) user or generator, however water availability and security of supply is a critical business risk for the industry as water input is essential to mining and minerals processing and to maintaining safety.
