Aboriginal culture & heritage

We respect the history of our land and Indigenous Australians, the traditional owners of the land in NSW. It is our responsibility to properly manage Aboriginal cultural heritage matters in areas where there is exploration or mining and our industry takes that responsibility very seriously.
 
There are many good examples of long-term relationships between the NSW minerals industry and Aboriginal communities. They provide valuable information about their culture and heritage in a given area, so that a full picture of their values and history is understood before any mining can commence.
 
We’ve produced the NSW Minerals Industry Due Diligence Code of Practice for the Protection of Aboriginal Objects to help the minerals industry exercise due diligence when carrying out activities relating to Aboriginal objects. The NSW Government has also published guidelines explaining how miners should consult with Aboriginal communities when a mine may disturb Aboriginal objects or places.
