The Association of Mining and Exploration Companies (AMEC) has lashed out at the Western Australian government, after Mines and Petroleum Minister Bill Johnston warned of an increase in levies to the Department of Mines and Petroleum’s (DMP’s) Mines Safety Branch (MSB).

The MSB is one of the branches within the DMP’s resources safety division, and is tasked with enforcing industry compliance with the Mines Safety and Inspection Act and the Mines Safety and Inspection Regulations.
