Silver Stocks in New South Wales

New South Wales is where silver mining began in Australia, and where the modern company known as BHP (ASX:BHP,NYSE:BHP,LSE:BHP) has roots dating back more than a century.

Silver was discovered at Broken Hill in the west of New South Wales in 1883. Two short years later, the Broken Hill Proprietary Company was floated, and from there the rest is history.

Broken Hill Proprietary, now known simply as BHP, rapidly became the largest mining company in Australia, and then the world, by diversifying, acquiring, merging and spreading its reach so that it had assets and interests on four continents — and it all began with the discovery of silver in New South Wales.

Copper Stocks in Western Australia

Western Australia is viewed as the engine room of Australia's mining industry, but it's not a major player when it comes to copper production and known resources — that crown sits firmly atop South Australia.

Nevertheless, while Western Australia is best known for its iron and gold output, two sectors it has cornered in Australia, it's also home to many base metals mines and exploration projects. At least eight individual base metals projects and operations have been identified by Geoscience Australia, with copper featuring in each of them.

Being home to such a large gold- and iron-mining industry, Western Australia hosts some of the largest mining companies in the world and attracts many prospective exploration and development companies.
