Many businesses serve and supply the mining industry. For example, Caterpillar-Elphinstone, a company based in Burnie, designs, constructs and distributes underground mine machinery; and Atlas Copco provides specialist mine equipment to Tasmanian mines. Environmental consultants and managers also service the industry.

The Tasmanian Minerals Council reports that most mines deal with between 300 and 500 suppliers, and one mine deals with over 1,100 suppliers. Payments on goods and services (excluding electricity and freight) in 2000-01 totalled $260m.
