Every part of modern life relies on access to commodities. From iron ore and nickel to produce the steel for bridges and buildings, to the copper and rare earth minerals needed to make wind turbines. A sustainable commodities sector must be part of our global future.
Global demand for Australian commodities is set to grow for the next decade. The Minerals Council of Australia forecasts increases of more than 50% in the demand for key commodities like aluminium, copper, nickel and lithium.
Mining has a proud place in our history and prosperity. Many years of mining have left more than 85,000 legacy mine sites in Australia.
