Mining is one of Australia's most important industries, creating significant employment and greatly contributing to the Australian economy. It's also a vital source of export revenue. Australia is the world's leading exporter of coal and iron ore, and is among the leaders in nickel, zinc, aluminum, gold and uranium. Minerals make up about 35% of Australia's total exports.
Mining activity occurs in each of Australia's states and territories. Significant areas include the Goldfields and Pilbara regions of Western Australia, the Hunter Valley in New South Wales, the Bowen Basin in Queensland and various parts of the Outback.
