The Upper Hunter Mining Dialogue

Many communities ​in the Hunter Valley ​have been built around the economic activity generated by mining, which continues to be a big part of the Hunter's economy, injecting ​around $6 billion in wages and payments to local businesses​ each year​. 
 
The growth of mining in the Upper Hunter has resulted in some challenges ​and concerns about infrastructure and services, land rehabilitation, water, affordable housing and air quality.

The Upper Hunter Mining Dialogue ​brings together local miners, community and business leaders, environment groups, residents, regulators and other industries​ to better understand and address these challenges together​.​

​The Upper Hunter Mining Dialogue is a new way of thinking​ and working together to minimise the cumulative impacts of mining.
