Mineral Resources Tasmania, Map Showing Locations of Mines and Processing Plants

Tasmania's rich mineral sector is vital to the State's economy, creating employment and wealth for its people and providing for much small business activity.

Mining broadly relates to the extraction of minerals occurring naturally as solids such as coal and ores, liquids such as crude petroleum, or gases such as natural gas. First stage processing of minerals and mineral extracts, while closely related to the mining industry, is included as part of the manufacturing industry.
