Mining industry contributing to Qld's future

MINING production in Queensland will be worth three times more by 2040, with the industry doing the numbers ahead of the Queensland Plan Brisbane Summit which begins today.

The summit will pull together guests from throughout the state as it works through the government's vaunted plan, which is to guide the state for the coming 30 years.

APN Newsdesk will have journalists covering the event from the Brisbane Convention and Exhibition Centre, keeping you informed online and in your favourite newspaper from this morning.

Queensland Resources Council chief Michael Roche said the mining industry was just one of those involved in contributing to the state's future.

"(Our) 30-year vision for Queensland shows how we can help meet the world's growing demand for minerals and energy, while being responsible stewards of land and water and minimising our energy inputs," Mr Roche said.

The event wraps up at 4.30pm on Thursday.
