Australia is estimated to be the world's third largest producer of commodities in the world. Australia's mineral industry acts as an important catalyst to the economic growth of the country. Australia is the world's largest bauxite, diamond, ilmenite and zircon producer, and is also a substantial producer of coal, iron ore, gold, uranium, zinc, lead and silver. Australia is fortunate in being nearly self sufficient in most commodities.
Australia has mining activity in all of its states and territories. Particularly significant areas today include the Goldfields, Peel and Pilbara regions of Western Australia, the Hunter Valley in New South Wales, the Bowen Basin in Queensland and Latrobe Valley in Victoria and various parts of the outback.
With an average employee income of well over $120,000 a year and an opportunity to create the perfect working and lifestyle balance, the Australian Mining industry is the largest growing sector of employment in the country. It provides a significant economic contribution to communities within the mining regions and throughout Australia.
