Mining & Critical Minerals

Unearth value in your mining operations.


If the last few years have shown anything, it's that the mining sector is not just dynamic – it's strategically important too. Governments around the world have created critical minerals strategies, energy transition is fuelling new demands, and Australia is in the box seat to benefit from it all.

But as you know, it's not enough to find deposits, secure rights and then get started. Today's (and tomorrow's) mining sector relies on sophisticated financing arrangements, tax-effective structures and joint ventures, farm-in and offtake arrangements to get the commercial settings right. Complex negotiations with Native Title holders, project approvals and ESG considerations must be properly understood and managed to keep your project on track. Access to ports and other logistics will depend upon expert advice in competition law. Workers' safety is a priority. Regulators will have questions. And the technical innovations that mining relies upon will raise intellectual property and cyber security issues.

We know this because we work on some of the nation's largest mining projects (and quite a few in the Asia-Pacific and Africa). You'll get legal advice informed by years of experience on mining projects both here and in-house, which digs deeper to uncover the real issues, bring them to the surface, and create real value for you.
