A report produced by KPMG on behalf of the Minerals Council of Australia highlights the importance of the mining sector to government revenue. It shows that corporate taxes and royalties have accounted for 39- 49 per cent of the sector’s earnings since 2011-12. MCA CEO Tania Constable says that on average, the minerals sector has paid more than $20bn in taxes and royalties annually over this period. She adds that the sector is helping to finance infrastructure projects and the salaries of public sector workers such as teachers and nurses.
