Australia’s world-class resources and energy sectors attract investment from around the globe. In Australia investors will find a stable and efficient regulatory environment, intellectual property protection, a highly skilled and multi-lingual workforce, and a strong culture of innovation.
Australia has significant reserves of mineral and primary energy resources including iron ore, coal, gas, uranium, wind and solar. This abundance underpins Australia’s position as a major global exporter of minerals and energy resources and products.
Australia’s resources sector is in a period of significant growth as it moves from the investment phase to the production phase of the mining boom. As major projects are completed, the iron ore, coal and LNG sectors will experience a large-scale ramp-up in production capacity.
“Australian companies lead the world in mining technology, services and equipment because they spend so much of their time and effort in the area of innovation”
Alan Broome, Chairman Emeritus, Austmine
