The German Federation of International Mining and Mineral Resources FAB in the Vereinigung Rohstoffe und Bergbau e.V. is a federation of German companies that are active in international mining and related activities or that are intending to do so in the future.

The FAB presents a platform for the exchange of information about the mining activities of their members abroad as well as for the articulation of their common interests in the dialogue with German and foreign institutions.

The FAB is particularly acquainted with the following topics and tasks:

  • Development in the international mineral industries and international resources policy
  • Exploitation of natural resources
  • Mining consulting and services; geological and environmental technologies
  • Foreign investments and project financing
  • Intermediation of contacts, lectures and cooperation events

In order to realise these tasks a FAB committee and a working group on consulting and engineering were founded. The working group presents itself externally as German International Consulting Groupwith which the member companies have established a pool of key experts for the solution of special consulting and engineering tasks.

In close cooperation with the VDMA and the Federal Ministry of Economics and Technology (BMWi) the FAB especially concentrates on several bilateral working groups on coal or mining with different countries. In addition, there are further agreements with partner mining associations in foreign countries in order to intensify the bilateral cooperation.

The FAB is acting as a contact-point for the industries and their associations in order to cooperate with the Federal Ministries and further Federal and regional institutions. The FAB is a partner for domestic as well as for external institutions – e. g. embassies, mining authorities and mining companies.
