About QRC

The Queensland Resources Council is a not-for-profit peak industry association representing the commercial developers of Queensland’s minerals and energy resources.

QRC works collaboratively with kindred organisations and stakeholders to achieve positive outcomes for QRC members.

QRC is not a government organisation.

Influential – respected by, and influential with governments, the community and the media, reflecting the quality of our policy advice and analysis
Strategic – focused on strategies to secure long-term sustainability of the minerals and energy sector
Leading – recognised widely for our leadership role by resource sector stakeholders
Trusted – carries a high degree of confidence and expectation from our stakeholders.
Our role

QRC’s role is to support the long-term sustainability of the resources sector in Queensland by:

Building strong community and stakeholder support for the minerals and energy sector’s social licence to operate
Promoting a world-class regulatory environment
Implementing strategies to secure key business inputs including skills, infrastructure, and Queensland’s minerals and energy inventory.
Our history

The Queensland Resources Council was formed in November 2003, succeeding the Queensland Mining Council in recognition of the organisation's increasingly diversifed membership base and vision for the future.

Today, QRC represents explorers, miners, mineral processors, contractors, oil and gas producers and electricity generators.

Together, these industries are the mainstay of the Queensland economy and significant contributors to the economic well-being of Australia.
