Contents >> Mining >> Value of mining production

The value of minerals produced from Tasmanian mines in 2000-01 was $504.2m, a decrease of 10.2% on the previous year. The main change was a decrease in lead, zinc and silver production, because of the closure in June 2000 of the Hellyer mine whose mineable reserves were exhausted.

Production of metallic minerals accounted for 88.2% of production in 2000-01.
