Industrial Info Releases Australia Metals & Minerals Industry Wall Map, an Industrial Info News Alert

SUGAR LAND, TX--(Marketwire - Oct 4, 2011) - Researched by Industrial Info Resources (Sugar Land, Texas) -- Australia is the land of opportunity for Metals & Minerals project spending in 2012. Second only to Canada as the largest country in the world for the value of mining projects under development, Australia has more than $200 billion in mining projects under development.

Because of this surge in activity, Industrial Info has researched and released the Australia Metals & Minerals Industry Wall Map - 1st Edition, to provide equipment and service providers with a clear view of the Metals & Minerals Industry in Australia.

Australia is the world's largest producer of iron ore, metallurgical coal, alumina, zinc and lead. The country is also a top producer of thermal coal, gold, copper and uranium. In addition to the 477 major operational mines, the map provides details of 175 mines currently under development. In addition to the mines, the map features details of other Metals & Minerals sectors, including cement plants, steel mills, smelters, as well as bulk terminal and port facilities.

With rising demand for metals and minerals resources, especially from Asia-Pacific countries, and significant resources required to help Japan repair damages from the 2011 earthquake and tsunami, Australia's Metals & Minerals Industry is poised for continued growth and development in 2012.
