Abstract

The object of this publication is to present statistical information which may be utilized in conjunction with the Australian mineral deposits described in Bulletin No. 72. The minerals and metals dealt with are arranged in alphabetical order. As far as possible the ore minerals are described under the name of the metal, but there are some exceptions to this rule. All tonnages are in long tons (2,240 lb.) unless otherwise stated. Statistics of Australian mine production are compiled mainly from data supplied by the State Departments of Mines, supplemented in places by other information made available to the Bureau of Mineral Resources. Such additional data are obtained from producers unless otherwise stated. The figures thus derived are more detailed than those of the Commonwealth Statistician's mine production statistics a series begun in 1952, and based also on information from the Mines Departments with some adjustment. Because of the difference in sources drawn upon and the degree of supplementary information employed, the two sets of figures do not agree in a few places. Import data shown represent full imports. The values of imports prior to 15th November, 1947 were recorded in British currency values f.o.b. and are so given in this Bulletin; as from that date, quoted values of all imports represent the f.o.b. values converted to Australian currency at the current rate of exchange on the day of import of the goods, and are as they appear in the Overseas Trade Bulletin. ? refers to £Australian, except where £ sterling is quoted in the same context when £A is used to avoid confusion. Australia changed to decimal currency on 14th February, 1966. Values expressed in £ (or£A) in this Bulletin should be multiplied by 2 to obtain values in $ (Australian). $1 = 1 0 / - (Aust.) [ = 8 / - (stg.) = $1*12 (U.S.) approx.].
