Export earnings from Australian mineral resources rose to a record $43.8b in 1999-2000, an increase of $5.0b or 13%. This stronger performance in 1999-2000 reflected significantly higher export prices and volumes for the majority of minerals and energy commodities. In particular, average unit prices for oil and gas exports increased by between 34 and 91%. Reflecting the general rise in prices, the index of unit returns from mineral resource exports (prices received in $A terms) increased by 10% in 1999-2000.
