Nevada Governor Signs Mining Agreement in Brisbane

The governor and a Nevada delegation he heads toured the Sustainable Mineral Institute at the University of Queensland, St. Lucia, and Sandoval met with David Camerlengo, Queensland's Trade and Investment commissioner for North America, and Dr. Anthony Lynham, Minister for Natural Resources.

Nevada Gov. Brian Sandoval signed a statement of intent Aug. 4 with the Queensland Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk to advance collaboration during the next three years between Nevada and that Australian state in the mining sector, as well as in higher education, water, and technology.

The goal is to work together and share best practices in:

  • mining technologies, health and safety, and environmental sustainability in mining
  • higher education
  • water management and water efficiency technologies
  • pathways for market access for start-ups and established technology companies

"Queensland's focus on innovation presents a unique opportunity to help propel many of our key industries into the future," Sandoval said. "We have committed to collaborate with the State of Queensland in areas of mutual benefit to ensure that we are working together to increase trade and investment opportunities. The Governor's Office of Economic Development will take the lead on ushering this partnership through, and I look forward to seeing the collaborative projects that will serve to increase our competitiveness in mining, education, water and technology."

The governor and a Nevada delegation he heads toured the Sustainable Mineral Institute at the University of Queensland, St. Lucia and participated in an education roundtable with faculty and school leaders, and Sandoval met with David Camerlengo, Queensland's Trade and Investment commissioner for North America, and Dr. Anthony Lynham, Minister for Natural Resources.
