The Boom: Iron ore and Australia. Australia’s economic future lies underneath our feet.

The Boom: Iron ore and Australia

The island continent is blessed with a variety of natural resources but none as plentiful or important as iron ore. Iron is a common element in soils and rocks – but finding it in high concentrations and the right minerals worth mining takes a bit more effort. Australia has been endowed with giant iron ore mineral resources and we keep finding more. In 2010, iron ore overtook coal as Australia’s most valuable export – $47.2 billion worth left our shores (coal was $43 billion). Given the debate about the carbon tax and climate change, can iron ore replace the money we currently earn from exporting carbon emissions - in coal form - to the world? Iron Ore.
