The Necessity, the Pros and the Cons

Chemical processing of minerals such as copper and gold uses enormous quantities of water. In Australia, where water is especially precious in times of drought, the mining industry accounts for two to three per cent of all water consumed in the nation, much of it required for extracting concentrate metals or controlling dust on mine sites.

Wulguru Steel

In the time since we last spoke with Wulguru Steel, quite a lot has been happening. According to General Manager Wayne Landrigan, most of it has been good despite the uncertainties of the economic climate and the – at best – moderate outlook for the mining industry, which traditionally accounts for around half of Wulguru’s output.

Strategic Resources

There are 17 classified rare earth elements, many of which have strategic purposes. Rare in name only, these elements are anything but scarce as they are found all over the world. The challenge rare earth elements pose is during extraction, as they exist in low concentrations and are difficult to separate from one another.
