Export earnings from Australian mineral resources rose to a record $55.6b in 2000-01, an increase of $11.8b or 27% on the previous year. This much stronger performance in 2000-01 reflected significantly higher export prices and volumes for the majority of minerals and energy commodities. In particular, average oil and gas export unit prices increased by between 31% and 40%. For a number of other commodities (alumina, aluminium, coal, iron ore, titanium dioxide pigment, zinc and zircon), export unit prices rose by between 15% and 23%. Reflecting the general rise in prices, the index of export unit returns for mineral resources (prices received in A$ terms) increased by 21% in 2000-01.
