Contents >> Mining >> Mineral processing

As few minerals can be directly used in the form in which they are mined, most minerals undergo processing and treatment before use.

The value of metallurgical production from Tasmanian and imported ores (including aluminium, cadmium, cement, ferromanganese, silicomanganese, sinter, superphosphate and zinc) was:

  • $891,514,000 in 1999-2000
  • $1,054,669,000 in 2000-01

(Source: Mineral Resources Tasmania, Annual Review 2000/2001.)

Mineral processing takes place at several sites in Tasmania.
