The Minerals Council of Australia is looking for a new chief executive officer following Mitch Hooke's decision to leave the organisation at the end of this year.

Mr Hooke, the council's chief executive since 2002, had made an enormous impact on the industry and the wider public-policy landscape, chairman Peter Johnston said.

"He has been a tireless campaigner for the minerals sector during some of its most difficult periods," he said in a statement on Tuesday.

Mr Hooke had considerable success improving the industry's environmental and social performance as well as enhancing the sector's relationship with indigenous Australians.

Mr Johnston said Mr Hooke had built a strong and highly-regarded organisation with a capable secretariat, an engaged membership and a reputation for policy integrity and credibility.

Mr Hooke has agreed to continue as a special adviser for 12 months after he steps down as CEO.
