Western Australia (WA) is a state occupying the entire western third of Australia. It is bound by Indian Ocean to the north and west, and the Southern Ocean to the south, the Northern Territory to the north-east and South Australia to the south-east. Western Australia is Australia’s largest state with a total land area of 2,529,875 square kilometers.



Australia has become one of the world’s leading mineral exporters. The mining industry continues to be a vital pillar for Australia’s economy. Western Australia, a premier mining state is a world-class producer of many mineral commodities and home to various Australian mineral industries focusing on iron ore, gold ore, nickel, silver, zinc, gold, copper, lithium and many others.

Western Australia is home to a lot of major mining locations including:

  • Pilbara

  • Paraburdoo

  • Port Hedland

  • Newman

  • East Kimberley Region

  • Kalgoorlie

  • Mid-West

  • Ravensthorpe

  • Leinster

  • Murchison

  • Greenbushes

  • Forrestania

  • Norseman


The Pilbara’s largest iron ore producers such as BHP, Rio Tinto, FMG, and Roy Hill are the leading exporters of iron ore around the world. As iron ore is almost used exclusively for steel making and with no significant steel mills in Australia, all of the iron ore is exported overseas steel making mills such as China.


The demand of other countries for a reliable supplier of high quality minerals as well as the regional demand for industrial mineral commodities has pushed mining industries in Western Australia to develop innovative mining processing at competitive costs.
