BHP is a leading global resources company. Our Minerals Australia business includes operations in Western Australia, Queensland, New South Wales and South Australia, focusing on iron ore, nickel, metallurgical coal, energy coal and copper.

Many of our operations are located on or near lands traditionally owned by or under the customary use of Indigenous Peoples and the long-term nature of our operations allows us to establish long lasting relationships with these Indigenous communities.
