Investment Opportunities in Australian Resources and Energy

Investment Opportunities in Australian Oil and Gas

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.
