Mining is critical to the lifestyle we have today, and for the future.
We’ve got a long history of mining in NSW, creating jobs and opportunities for generations.
Our high-quality, low-emissions coal is used for energy and to create steel for buildings, transport and major infrastructure here around and around the world.
And we’re also mining the metals of the future - like gold, copper, zinc and other essential components for smartphones, electric vehicles and renewable energy infrastructure like batteries, wind turbines, and solar panels.
As our industry grows, so does our commitment to finding smarter and more sustainable ways of doing things.
Like using drones to help transform former mine sites into native bushland or high-quality farmland, and using renewable energy to power some of our mining operations.
Because in NSW, we mine responsibly - for today, and tomorrow.
The metals here in NSW are essential for so much of the technology we all use every day.
Like gold, used for electrical wiring in smartphones and computers.
Copper, used in electric vehicles, and for wind turbines and solar panels.
And nickel and cobalt, used to create lithium-ion batteries found in smartphones, laptops and so much of the technology we all use every day.
Lyndsay is a Geotechnical Engineer and mine manager at Newcrest Mining’s Cadia Valley Operations near Orange in the Central West of NSW.
It's one of the biggest underground gold mines in Australia, and it’s right here in regional NSW.
Lyndsay became interested in mining at an early age, following in the footsteps of her father who was a mining engineer.
During her 15-year career in mining, Lyndsay has seen a lot of change, including what we mine and how we mine.
We’re working hard to find smarter ways to help protect the environment, to keep people safe, and to provide the metals and minerals needed for a more sustainable future.
