Employer Profile

In this world of rapid, powerful change, the world belongs to those who can redefine it and – in mining – today’s pioneers are tomorrow’s winners. That’s why we have set out our innovation-led approach to sustainable mining – FutureSmart Mining™. It applies innovative thinking and technological advances to address mining’s major challenges.


We are a globally diversified mining business with operations in Australia, South Africa, South America and Canada. Our metals are the essential ingredients in smartphones, electric cars and wind turbines, while also purifying traditional vehicle and other emissions; our basic materials build our homes, offices, railways and airports; and our diamonds fulfil your dreams. Simply put, our products move the world towards a more sustainable future.


In Australia, we are proud to be one of the largest producers and exporters of metallurgical coal, operating three underground and two open cut metallurgical coal mines. We produce approximately 30 million tonnes and export approximately 19 million tonnes of Queensland’s highest quality coking coal each year.


For the past 100 years, our employees have led from the front. Today, we are leading the industry forward again by finding new ways to mine and process our products. Using less water, less energy and more precise extraction technologies, we are reducing our physical footprint for every ounce, carat and kilo of precious metal or mineral.


While also working together to develop better jobs, a better education and better businesses, we are building brighter and healthier futures around our operations, in our host countries and ultimately for billions of people around the world who depend on our products every day. As we look out to the next 100 years, we will continue to unearth the potential beneath our feet, the potential that mining enables – both locally and globally.


That’s why at Anglo American, we reimagine mining to improve people’s lives.
