Community, mining, business, and government working together to address the cumulative impacts of mining.
Overview of the Dialogue
The Upper Hunter Mining Dialogue (the Dialogue) was established in 2011 by the region’s miners in response to community concerns about infrastructure and services, mine rehabilitation, water and quality.
The Dialogue brings together local miners, community and business leaders, environment groups, residents, regulators and other industries to better understand and address these challenges together.
The Dialogue is a collaborative effort addressing local community priorities by understanding its concerns and then working together to develop and implement solutions.
