• Mining is vital to Tasmania’s economy.

    It employs more than 5000 Tasmanians and represents nearly 50% of our total state exports.


  • Tasmania has an annual minerals emergency response competition.

    The Minerals Emergency Response Teams contribute to the local community by responding and assisting in road accident emergencies, national park and bush land fire protection and fire fighting and bushwalker rescue as well as any mining/ minerals accidents.

  • Tasmania has some of the best minerals emergency response in the country and it is the only State to share a universal emergency 555 number.

  • Keith Corbett is a veteran Geologist and a World Authority on Tasmania’s Mt Read Volcanics Belt, West Coast.

    "There are misperceptions of the Tarkine especially on the mainland."

    "It's a perfectly natural decision for mining in the Tarkine, I'm delighted by the government's decision," Keith says.

  • In 2013 the main political parties and the ten councils of Tasmania’s Cradle Coast Authority publically showed their support for modern mining in the Tarkine.

    This was on top of the four unprecedented pro mining rallies that around 10,000 people attended in regional Tasmania in 2013.
