@absstats (Australian Bureau of Statistics) figures show the mining industry has contributed 8.8% of the country’s gross value in 2017–18, a figure around 87% higher than 1994–95 levels (4.7%)!
“In the past 12 months the Queensland resources industry has added 10, 000 new jobs — or a new job every 40 minutes. And resources account for 80 per cent of Queensland’s exports. 👷👷👷
“The latest ABS study points to the fact that the increase in mining investment in recent years will lead to higher levels of mining production.”
