    Industry Analysis & Industry Trends

    Revenue for the Silver, Lead and Zinc Ore Mining industry has only marginally declined over the past five years, despite volatile zinc, lead and silver prices and production volumes over the period. Industry revenue is expected to decrease at an annualised 2.4% over the five years through 2016-17. However, revenue is forecast to grow by 3.6% in 2016-17, to reach $4.2 billion, reflecting higher zinc and lead ore prices due to greater global demand. Silver production volumes and prices have declined over the past five years, as downstream companies using silver in manufacturing processes have turned to substitute metals or reduced demand. Domestic lead output volumes have decreased slightly in the past five years, due to higher output from China reducing demand for Australian lead...

    Industry Report - Industry Products Chapter

    The Silver, Lead and Zinc Ore Mining industry can mine its products simultaneously, as silver, lead and zinc typically occur together in complex mineral deposits. These deposits can also contain gold or copper. According to Geoscience Australia, Australia has the world's largest deposits of zinc and lead, with more than half of these proven resources located in Queensland. Although lead and zinc are often co-produced, the outlook for zinc generally determines whether or not a prospective area is mined. As a result, lead output is broadly linked to the supply of and demand for zinc. Silver production from the same mine adds to operational viability. The importance of various ores in industry revenue varies over time, with changes in demand, relative output and prices.
