Mining in Australia is a significant primary industry and large contributor to the Australian economy. The value added by the mining industry in Australia amounted to approximately 125 billion Australian dollars in the financial year 2017. With 41 percent of market share, the gold mining sector generates the largest operating revenue in the Australian mining industry. Historically, mining booms encouraged many immigrants to move to Australia. Today, the gold mining industry counts almost 28,000 workers and approximately 126,000 people are employed in the total mining market in Australia.
