Representing the interest of all professional miners, large or small

North Queensland Miners Association Inc

The North Queensland Miners Association (NQMA) represents the interest of all professional miners, large or small, throughout the vast area of North Queensland stretching in a line from south of Townsville west to the Northern Territory border and taking in the whole of Cape York.

The role of NQMA is to ensure all miners and the mining industry in general is represented and involved in all matters that affect all miners in North Queensland.

The primary function of NQMA is to be involved in legislation changes and to ensure government mining laws meet modern community expectations whilst maintaining access to minerals for all miners in north Queensland.

A secondary function of NQMA is to promote mining and the mining industry in general in north Queensland.

Anyone involved in the mining industry in north Queensland should be a member of and involved in NQMA to ensure relevant issues are identified and dealt with from a unified position. Involvement will ensure you are kept up to date with issues affecting your mining.

A strong unified position will bring about legislation changes that will never be achieved by individuals. NQMA gives everyone an opportunity to put forward their point of view and have input into decisions. NQMA is a volunteer, not for profit organisation and maintains a non -political position.

Annual activities include:

  • Five General Meetings each year
  • Publish five ‘Miner’s Right’ Newsletters each year
  • Organise and run the north Queensland Gold panning competition in August each year
  • Publishes the NQMA Miners Calendar each year
  • Maintains good relationship with all other miners associations in Queensland and nationally
  • NQMA defends the interest of the mining industry and all miners in north Queensland without fear or favour
