Future Trends and Prospects for the Australian Mineral Processing Sector.
MISSING :41 pages
An important objective of the Australian government's policies on resources development is to encourage further processing of raw materials domestically, to the extent that this is economically feasible and consistent with sound industrial development. This Bureau of Mines report examines the extent to which Australia is able to pursue this policy in terms of its own competitive advantages and the implications of such a policy for the United States. Such factors as the impact of other competing producers and their advantages, expected world demand, and infrastructural problem- -which may limit pursuit of this policy to the fullest extent--are discussed. After a broad review of the resource, economic, social, and environmental factors, the perspective for increased processing is examined for a number of mineral commodities.
