Since its inception in 1995 the Mineral Policy Institute has focused on the activities of Australian mining companies overseas. Increasingly, Australia and some of its most vulnerable people and places are threatened by irresponsible mining. MPI is working towards a greater engagement on Australian mining issues.

We are currently working on mine waste and legacy mines in Australia, visit the website. The site started with a northern Australian focus but we are now expanding it.
