About AMEC

The Association of Mining and Exploration Companies (AMEC) represents the mining and mineral exploration sector in Australia. AMEC also has the largest membership base in the resources industry.

 AMEC has saved the industry millions of dollars by being willing to challenge public policy issues and advocate crucial initiatives to reduce the cost of doing business for the industry and increase Australian mineral exploration and discovery.

AMEC has ready access to Ministers, leading politicians and Government decision-makers in Federal, State and Territory jurisdictions. We use these relationships to address public policy issues, and implement positive change.

Industry committees and working groups

AMEC has industry based committees and working groups with representatives from our members. These groups allow members to become directly involved and ensure our policies and advocacy initiatives align with industry directions. View our Focus Areas here>  


AMEC is governed by an Executive Council elected by our members. AMEC is run by a small, hardworking and extremely successful team of professional staff with many years of hands on experience in the minerals industry and industry representation.
