Descripción del documento: 
This paper presents preliminary findings from a comparative study of the community engagement practices of eight Australian mining and minerals operations. It reports on what we have learnt to date about: • minerals operations and how they engage with their communities • communities and their experience and expectations of mining companies • employees and how they assess the social performance of their sites. The concluding part of the paper briefly discusses the implications of the research findings for improving community engagement practices in the Australian minerals industry.
