Our Economic Contribution

Mining is an important contributor to a strong NSW economy.

Our industry supports around 40,000 jobs in Sydney and in mining regions across the state.

With long-term projects and global demand for our commodities remaining strong, mining will continue to help build and support economies and communities across regional NSW.
