    Mining

    The resources sector in Australia covers exploring, extracting, processing and exporting minerals and petroleum (oil, condensate and gas). Australia has large quantities of these resources, which it mines. Used domestically and exported to countries around the world.

    Resources are critical to the Australian economy because they underpin important parts of industrial and export activity. Domestically, Australia's resources industries ensure a supply of energy raw materials at competitive prices to households and businesses.

    Australia has a well-deserved reputation as a reliable and competitive supplier of a wide range of high-quality mineral and energy products. Earnings from resource exports make up almost half of Australia's total export earnings, which further contribute to economic growth.

    Growth in Australia's resources sector depends critically on investment in exploration. Strong growth in the sector in recent years has been underpinned by robust minerals exploration expenditure over the past decade. Mineral exploration expenditure in Australia has increased by 11 per cent (in inflation adjusted terms) over the past 10 years, to $1.4 billion in 2006–07.

    Most of this was spent in Western Australia, with the largest proportion on finding gold ($455.9 million). In 2006–07, total Australian mineral and petroleum exploration expenditure rose by 57 per cent to $3.9 billion, following a 21 per cent rise in 2005–06. Strong increases in expenditure reflected high minerals prices.

    Australia has the world's largest resources of recoverable brown coal, lead, rutile, zircon, nickel, tantalum, uranium and zinc, and ranks second in the world for bauxite, copper, gold, ilmenite and silver. Economic demonstrated resources (EDR) for industrial diamonds are ranked third largest in the world and manganese ore fourth.

    In 2006–07, mineral resource exports totaled $107.8 billion, or 77.4 per cent of Australia's total commodity trade. Over the six years to 2006-07, Australian mine production increased by almost 21 per cent to meet world demand. Over the same period, China and Japan were the largest buyers of Australian minerals.
