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.

Peru has established itself as a mining force to be reckoned with in recent years, spurred on by a range of new projects and expansions of existing operations. Peru has a mining portfolio worth over US$52billion, accounting for more than 17% of GDP and half of the country’s exports. 

The Peru Mining Mission will host exclusive site visits and management meetings with representatives from major mining houses, allowing you to develop your understanding of the sector and build local contacts. This will include an opportunity to present your capabilities and expertise to companies interested in what Australian METS have to offer.

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.
