Attracting investment into Australia's resources sector remains a high priority for the Australian federal, state and territory governments. Australia is internationally recognised as a preferred investment destination for minerals resources exploration, development and supply, providing both commercial and operational advantages for investors.
New government initiatives support the long-term sustainability of the Australian resources sector by de-risking and encouraging mineral exploration and discovery, particularly in underexplored areas of Australia. New discoveries in frontier regions will increase knowledge of Australia’s geology and resources, and provide employment opportunities.
On this page you will find information about Australian federal, state and territory government initiatives that actively encourage and support industry investment in Australia’s mineral resources sector.
