Summary
"In the last decade or so Australian mining companies have begun to take a more proactive approach to increasing Indigenous participation in the mining workforce. This article provides an overview of key trends and reviews recent research on the outcomes for Indigenous people of increased participation in the mining workforce. The article concludes that the industry's performance in providing employment opportunities for Indigenous people has been highly variable and there is still much to be achieved. However, research data from two large mines with substantial Indigenous workforces shows that there is potential for positive outcomes to be delivered for Indigenous people who do obtain work in the sector."
