Investing in our communities

The gold industry is critical to the social and economic fabric of our nation’s most remote communities.

In many regional towns, gold mining is the main source of economic activity.

Companies employ men and women in a wide range of skilled jobs and partner with local businesses to supply goods and services.

Gold miners have a proud record of training Indigenous employees and working closely with traditional owners.

Gold miners invest in their local communities. They support sporting and recreational activities and fund vital emergency and community services. They also help to build and maintain social and physical infrastructure.

The gold industry creates opportunity, employment and prosperity. Additionally, the industry promotes workplace diversity and gender equality by applying strategies that break down barriers to female participation and promotion.
