    3. Australian Mining sector key figures

    The Australian Mining Industry in key figures:

    Australia has a mature mining and resources industry built on nearly 200 years of experience. The strength of Australia’s resource sector has fuelled much of its economic development and helped underpin social development. Australia is endowed with an abundant supply of mineral resources, including the world’s largest Economically Demonstrated Resources (EDR) of lead, iron ore, rutile, zircon, nickel, uranium and zinc.

    Australia is a world leader in the production of key mineral commodities including:

    • the world’s leading producer of bauxite, rutile, zircon and lithium
    • the 2nd largest producer of gold, iron ore, lead, alumina and ilmenite
    •  the 3rd largest producer of manganese, uranium and zinc
    • the 4th largest producer of black coal, diamonds, nickel and silver
    • the 5th largest producer of brown coal and copper.

    This abundance of mineral resources, underpinned by significant investment in research and development  (A$2.8 billion in 2013/14),3 has generated a skilled industry of professionals, advanced extraction processes and cutting-edge technology.

    The METS (Mining Equipment Technology and Service) sector contributes more than A$90 billion to the Australian economy annually, with current exports exceeding A$27 billion.

    Australia has historically been a world leader in mining innovations. This trend is reflected in the international patent records, which show that in recent years there has been some recovery in the number of patent filings arising from Australian research. These innovations occur across a wide cross-section of mining technologies and derive from both public and private sector research. As a strong correlation, Australia has 6 universities ranked among the top 20 mining schools, which is largest number for a country.
