International Mining Missions

Austmine's missions take Australian METS companies to prospective overseas mining markets for a week of site visits, meetings, networking events and briefings with leading mining companies, local suppliers, associations and government bodies.

Our missions are designed to give participants a deep understanding of the local mining market, procurement practices and project opportunities and aim to assist Australian METS in positioning their business as a potential supplier to mining operations around the globe. Austmine puts together a program to ensure the right meetings take place and that your company is introduced to a range of decision makers who are interested in potentially buying your products and services, ranging from senior level executives to technical personnel on site. Austmine often partners with Austrade, state governments and local associations in organising missions. 

Why participate in an Austmine mission?

Exclusive site visits to build knowledge and gain insights from technical personnel on mining projects around the world 
Present your capabilities to senior management and executives of local and multi-national mining companies
Gather information from local experts on mining operations, market conditions and export strategies
An unparalleled opportunity to build numerous connections in key markets through networking events
Form relationships and build partnerships with fellow mission attendees, local METS, government agencies and relevant associations

MINExpo INTERNATIONAL® 2020 is Postponed Until September 2021

Austmine welcomes and supports the decision to postpone MINExpo INTERNATIONAL® until September 2021 as the safety and health of the Australian exhibitors and delegates are of the utmost importance.

We will continue to work with the National Mining Association and Facet International on staging the Australian Pavilions and Grandstand in Las Vegas in September 2021 and so providing the Austmine exhibitors and delegates with an invaluable exposure and networking opportunity at this truly global mining event.

All stands and space allocations will be transferred unchanged to the Australian Pavilion and Grandstand, so no further action will be required at your end for the time being.

If you are interested in exhibiting at the conference in 2021, we have limited booths left so please contact for further information.

From September, we will restart preparations including registration, booth outfit and display, freight logistics etc. that we communicate to you once we will receive the key date from the MINExpo organisers.

We will also deliver a series of webinars related to MINEXpo and how to prepare your entry to the US market.

If you have any queries or concerns or require assistance at this stage, do not hesitate to contact Robert Trzebski at or on direct line 02 9380 2550.

What our attendees say

The Austmine Chilean Mission, that FloLevel Technologies joined in 2016, created major opportunities for our specialized process instrumentation to the worlds largest Copper producers. Typically the time to achieve this acceptance, from the clients, could be in years of developing relationships, but the Austmine mission was highly respected by the Chilean Mining Companies and therefore, relationship development between supplier and customer was expedited much faster.

Rob Stirling, Managing Director, FloLevel Technologies


I enjoyed the 2016 Russian mission. I learnt a great deal from the other participants attending, this was invaluable. When the mission wrapped up I was happy about the outcome in that I received very good interest but was left with the impression that the Russian market would be difficult to penetrate. However, in the 10 months following my visit, my company has done very well in selling software and products into the region. More than I could have imagined.
