Championing the Australian METS sector to be the best in the world

Austmine is the leading not-for-profit industry association for the Australian Mining Equipment, Technology and Services (METS) sector. We drive the success of our members by providing opportunities to build relationships, understand industry needs, boost their industry profile and access domestic and international supply chains. 

Austmine’s membership now represents over 630 METS companies nationally. Within our network we offer a diversity of organisations from which to collaborate, innovate and build partnerships; from large contract miners, engineering companies and technology consultancies; to start-ups, research organisations and professional services firms.    

For over 30 years Austmine has advocated for Australia’s METS sector to be recognised as a world leader in mining innovation and technology. Working hand-in-hand with our members, we have achieved a number of significant milestones over this time:

  • Coining the now internationally recognised term of METS.
  • Demonstrating the importance of the METS sector as a key contributor to Australia’s economic prosperity with our National METS Survey, providing over $90 billion in gross annual revenue for the nation.
  • Founding and developing the biennial Austmine Conference, which is now recognised as the leading event for engaging in mining innovation.
  • Leading Australian technology delegations to the far reaches of the globe, from Papua New Guinea and New Caledonia, to Russia and Kazakhstan.

We are proud to represent the internationally renowned Australian METS sector and are working hard to ensure Australia is the global hub for mining innovation. Our values demonstrate our commitment to investing our effort and energy to driving growth and success for our members.
