World class mining innovation

Dear Sir,
The NSW Minerals Council has supported the release of the latest stage of the national Making the Future Possible campaign, featuring the Australian mining industry’s innovative use of cutting-edge drone technology.

The use of new drone technology to enhance safety and productivity at mine sites is an example of how the mining industry in NSW and across the country is one of the most technologically advanced in the world, with a highly skilled mining workforce and ongoing investment in skills and training.

The campaign’s latest focus on drones and technology complements another campaign theme that highlights the growth and success of NSW business Quarry Mining and its Managing Director, Kari Armitage.

The growth and success of Hunter Valley business Quarry Mining is a great example how mining creates additional jobs beyond actual mining operations, including through the thousands of mining supplier businesses across NSW that are increasingly using innovation and technology to keep our mining industry as the world’s best.
