Mining involves the extraction and production of coals, metals and minerals to be exported as well as the exploration and investment of new mining sites. The majority of Australia’s exports derives from the mining industry. According to the Resources and Energy Quarterly for December 2021, export revenue is expected to reach $379 billion in 2022. Experts in this field improve the efficiency of mine operations and explore potential mining sites to invest in.

Experts in this area come from engineering or geology backgrounds or have gone further to obtain a degree in finance and investment. They can also be members of organisations such as Australasian Institute of Mining and Metallurgy.
