NSW Minerals Council welcomes Resources 2030 Report

September 21, 2018

The NSW Minerals Council welcomes the Resources 2030 Report released today. We call on all political parties and governments to support actions needed to meet the Taskforce ambition of having ‘...the world’s most advanced and successful resources sector delivering sustained prosperity and social development for Australians’.


The Report recommends that governments should work harder to promote investment in Australia’s world class resources sector. Removing barriers to investment is also required.


As outlined in the Report, duplication of regulation across governments is a major barrier to ongoing investment in the mineral sector.


“While the mining sector expects robust regulation to the highest standards, it is clear that existing regulatory systems add significant cost for little or no environmental or social benefit. A renewed commitment this issue is critical to attract the investment needed to secure the long term future of many regional mining towns and communities in NSW,” NSW Minerals Council CEO said today.


The Report also recommends further action to encourage minerals exploration across Australia, by examining opportunities to coordinate efforts and access rare earth metals that are critical in battery technology.


“Exploration and investment are critical to the long term future of mining in NSW so it’s good to see the strong focus of the 2030 Resources Report on these issues,”
