CSIRO has invited all Australians 18 years and over to provide their input to a survey that aims to investigate the attitudes of Australians towards the modern mining industry. 

Australia’s national science agency, CSIRO, engaged Voconiq to conduct the survey that aims to explore the attitudes of Australians towards the mining industry today. 

Voconiq has been engaged to conduct the survey and the work follows CSIRO’s previous  surveys in 2014 and 2017, which produced insights on its expectations for how mining is conducted in Australia.

This survey is an opportunity for all Australians, not just those in the mining industry, to share their views on mining, its role in the national economy, supporting the world in the energy transition, global development and in producing materials for low emission technologies.  

CSIRO Director of Mineral Resources, Dr Rob Hough, said that mining plays a crucial role in producing the materials necessary for the transition to low emission technologies, global electrification and global development in general, and conversations generated from surveys like this will help shape the industry’s future, balancing its growth with community expectations.

“Your insights will be instrumental in guiding our ongoing research,” Dr Hough said. 

CSIRO will use the results from the survey to inform future mining related research initiatives that lead to public reports and academic publications. 

The survey is now open, and all Australians 18 years and over who have an opinion on mining are invited to participate. The closing date for participation is 11 April 2024.
