What does Australia mine? Australia mines just about every type of metal found. We mine coal, iron, diamond, gold, shale, uranium, and just about anything and everything else that you could imagine brining out of the ground.
This leads to the production of many mining jobs and employment in industries which aid or assist mines. Historically, mining booms in Australia have encouraged immigration booms.
How much training do you need to get employed in mining?
Mines employ people from all walks of life and all levels of education. Mines in Australia employ people with just about every trade background, and degrees in engineering, risk management, safety, nursing, and management.
