Australia has historically dominated the mining industry, securing a position in the global top five for production of a majority of the world's most important minerals and metals. Like most industries, Australia's mining sector has not been immune to the effects of the global economic downturn. Even the largest mining operators in the region have faced the threat of halted production and closed mines as the demand for iron ore, coal and other minerals waned. Looking ahead, it seems the Australian economy has rallied. The Central Bank has already noted Australia's emergence from the downturn as happening significantly faster than expected, while analysts forecast metals and minerals such as iron ore and copper jumping in demand in 2013-2014. Much of this turnaround can be attributed to China, who will play a vital role in not only future export revenues for Australian mining, but also growth and development as China's investments in the resource-rich country escalate.
