Sustainable Resource Communities Policy Social impact assessment in the mining and petroleum industries

  • Year: 2008
  • Author: Queensland Government
  • Country: Australia
  • State/Region: Queensland

The mining and petroleum industries are a vital part of Queensland’s economy, contributing over $16 billion to Queensland’s Gross State Product and employing over 30,000 people.

This economic activity is underpinned by a titling and registration framework, which is administered by the Queensland Government, with over 6,700 tenures issued and in force. Over 2,400 of the tenures issued are mining leases, of which more than 200 relate to coal mining. Of these coal mining leases, 53 support operating mines, with 45 of these mines located in the Bowen Basin.
