21 March 2024 News Release

All Australians 18 years and over are invited to participate in an important survey aimed at shaping the future of mining research for our country.  

Australia’s national science agency, CSIRO, engaged Voconiq to conduct the survey that aims to explore the attitudes of Australians towards the mining industry today. 

This work follows our last surveys in 2014 and 2017, which produced important insights on our expectations for how mining is conducted in this country.

This survey is an opportunity for all Australians, not just those in the mining industry, to share their views on mining, its role in the national economy, supporting the world in the energy transition, global development and in producing materials for low emission technologies.  

“Mining plays a crucial role in producing the materials necessary for the transition to low emission technologies, global electrification and global development in general, and conversations generated from surveys like this will help shape the industry's future, balancing its growth with community expectations,” Dr Rob Hough, CSIRO’s Director of Mineral Resources, said. 

“Your insights will be instrumental in guiding our ongoing research.” 

CSIRO will use the results from the survey to inform future mining related research initiatives that lead to public reports and academic publications. 

The survey is now open, and all Australians 18 years and over who have an opinion on mining are invited to participate.

For more information or to take the survey.

The survey will take around 20 minutes to complete.  

The closing date for participation is 11 April 2024.
