Mining in New Zealand
The New Zealand Government welcomes responsible minerals exploration. Safe and environmentally responsible development of New Zealand’s mineral wealth is a key part of our economic growth strategy. Unlocking the potential of our under explored mineral resources will help secure a better future for all New Zealanders and help regional economies to grow.
The Government is committed to ensuring New Zealand has a robust and best practice regime that manages development every step of the way, delivers certainty for potential investors, and protects New Zealand’s high environmental standards.
