The German Mining Network is an association of six competence centres for mining and raw materials located at the Chambers of Commerce Abroad (AHKs) in Australia, Brazil, Chile, Canada, Peru and Southern Africa and various partners in the raw materials sector in Germany.
On the German side, the German Mineral Resources Agency (DERA) in the Federal Institute for Geosciences and Natural Resources (BGR) and Germany Trade and Invest (GTAI) are core partners of the German Mining Network. The Federal Ministry of Economics and Energy (BMWi) supports and accompanies the activities of the network. The Association of German Chambers of Industry and Commerce (DIHK) has a coordinating role.
By bundling its competencies, its comprehensive contacts and its services, the German Mining Network offers German companies and organisations a platform that guarantees accelerated access to information and expertise. The German Mining Network provides companies with support both at the strategic level, for example in questions of securing and supplying raw materials or evaluating projects, and at the operational level, for example by providing support in market entry or in the search for projects or business partners. The range of services is essentially aimed at two target groups: German companies purchasing raw materials or the mining supply industry.
