Mineral resources

ATSE’s Mineral Resources Forum brings together eminent experts to provide evidence-based advice on Australia’s mineral and mining sector.

The global energy transition will result in a transformation of the mining sector in Australia.

Even as global trends evolve, mining and minerals will remain a crucial aspect of the global economy.

ATSE’s Mineral Resources Forum advocated for the adoption of new more efficient technology and processes, which will ensure substantial capital, labour, resource, and operational productivity improvements. The Forum is exploring how Australia can guarantee a sustainable and internationally competitive future for the Australian mining sector.
