International Supply Opportunities

Austmine works with partners around the world to bring Australian METS companies supply opportunities in key prospective markets.

Austmine and Tata Steel (India) are implementing the Innoventure program in Australia, Tata Steel’s flagship METS engagement program. Innoventure allows Australian solution providers to access the Indian mining market and collaborate with a $23B global steel manufacturing company. This partnership will see Australian METS start-ups and SMEs engage with Tata Steel and access opportunities to add innovation and advanced technologies to their value chain. 

We support the EXPANDE Open Innovation in Mining Program by providing METS companies with fantastic opportunities to submit a solution to miners' current challenges and have the chance to become part of a pilot project in Chile. Austmine plays a critical role in communicating these opportunities to the Australian market. 

Austmine has also partnered with METS Ignited, Linkminers, Austrade and other organisations to bring supply opportunities to Australian METS from around the globe. Please check back regularly for new open challenges.
