Voice for Mining

Each year, we stand together on Voice for Mining Family Day in Newcastle. 

Established in 2013, Voice for Mining is a growing community of people who work in mining, and recognise the contribution of mining families and the businesses that support mining.

The Newcastle Knights men’s team has proudly worn the hi-vis colours for more than a decade.

At Voice for Mining Family Day 2023, the men’s team beat the South Sydney Rabbitohs, and the women’s team beat the Brisbane Broncos in front of a sold-out crowd of almost 30,000 people, including thousands of local mining families.

We do it in support of mining families and the tens of thousands of responsible mining professionals in NSW.

And we do it to show just how much support there is for our mining industry.

This year, a special 10-year edition hi-vis jersey was showcased at Voice for Mining Family Day.

And a new patch on the back of the jersey references a range of metals and minerals mined in NSW, including gold, copper, silver, zinc, nickel, coking coal for making steel and our high-quality low-emissions thermal coal for electricity.

2022 has been a big year for the NSW Minerals Council and Newcastle Knights partnership.

As well as celebrating 10 years in partnership with the Newcastle Knights, NSW Minerals Council has been named as a foundation partner and major sponsor of the Newcastle Knights’ inaugural NRLW team.

The sponsorship highlights our industry’s continued support for women’s sport, which has included sponsoring the Newcastle Knights under 19s team in the Tarsha Gale Cup since 2018.
