Accountable Mining Program in Australia: Overview & Timeline

11 March 2021

The Accountable Mining Program aims to enhance transparency and accountability in the award of mining-related permits, licences, leases, and contracts through evidence based, cross sector dialogue and problem solving.


In Australia, we focused our research on the mining approval regimes in Queensland and Western Australia.


Following the release of our research report in 2017 (Corruption Risks: Mining Approvals in Australia), we set about to understand different perspectives, to build trust, and work with government, industry and civil society to develop dynamic solutions. This timeline shows the progress of the Accountable Mining Program in Australia, the collaboration with our diverse range of stakeholders, and events that have showcased our work.
