Australia’s 5 Most Valuable Mineral Exports

Australia’s economy is largely based on its natural resources, with the minerals sector making the greatest contribution to the nation’s exports.

Newcrest Mining Limited – Exploration Update 10 June 2021

Highlights

  • At Red Chris, drilling continues to expand the higher grade mineralisation intersected at East Ridge and in the Main Zone:
    • At East Ridge, the new discovery adjacent to the East Zone, drilling continues to expand the footprint of the higher grade mineralisation with RC688 returning 344m @ 0.70g/t Au & 0.75% Cu from 776m, incl. 170m @ 1.1g/t Au & 1.1% Cu from 892m. This hole is 100m east of the discovery hole RC678 (previously reported).
