Joining the Association

Membership is open to companies involved in the critical minerals value chain from exploration through, mining, midstream processing, and downstream processing. We recognise the importance of support services such as technology companies, risk analysts, consultants, ESG experts, lawyers, and financiers and are passionate about bringing the entire mining and extractive ecosystem together.

There is only one tier of membership to ensure that all companies have an equal voice, no matter the size or reach of influence. Collectively we can drive change by voicing unified recommendations to governments.

Why Join?

There is no single, unified voice specific to the critical minerals sector in Australia.

The CMAA uniquely caters to ESG-driven companies that are crucial to the energy transition.


While the CMAA is fully independent and its Australian members set the agenda, the CMAA benefits from the experience and track record of its sister associations, as well as extensive government relationships across the globe.
