Mining Standards

Mining shaping the future

The mining industry not only supports the ever-expanding demands of the modern world but can support entire nations. It forms the backbone to many countries and regions, where economical and employment benefits not only allow a nation to survive, but to thrive.

While working to meet demands, the industry must navigate a variety of process and operational challenges, where safety, environment, logistics and trade need to be considered and/or addressed. 

With the right information and guidance, provided by Standards, organisations can feel confident that their operations and processes meet industry benchmarks and assist in creating an efficient and sustainable mining industry.
