Smart Mining - Austmine 2012 Member Survey

In 2011, it was decided that an annual survey of members needed to be conducted to:

• Better understand the needs of members of Austmine;
• Assist with development of policy priorities and;
• Identify industry trends and changes.

Except for last year’s survey, previous attempts to conduct research of this nature have been undertaken via a survey online and success has been somewhat limited. It was decided that the best way to elicit feedback was to conduct a telephone survey of selected Austmine members. The second wave of this was implemented in 2012 using a similar approach.

Survey Distribution

The survey was developed online and 142 members of Austmine were contacted via telephone. Interviewing commenced on 24th July and completed on 3rd September, 2012.


There were 60 participants from the 142 contacted to participate. This represents a response rate of 42.3%. Of the 60 participants, 57 were completed and useable. This represents a completion rate of 40.1%. Of the 142 members contacted, 13 members refused to complete. This represents a refusal rate of 9.2%. Tribe Research was unable to contact 35 of the selected members during the interviewing period. This represents a non-contact rate of 24.6%.

Austmine’s vision is for Australia to be the world’s number one supplier of innovative, efficient and safe mining equipment, technologies and services.

Austmine is a mining conference that brings together leading companies from around Australia that supply to the global mining industry and the Australian mining industry, and proactively works to raise to profile of the Australian METS sector abroad.
