About the Minerals Industry

The minerals industry (encompassing exploration, extraction and processing) is a major contributor to national income, investment, high-wage jobs, exports and government revenues in Australia. It operates in a global industry where competition for markets is intense, where investment opportunities abound in other resource-rich economies and where capital, people and technology are highly mobile.
