A new report from the Department of Industry notes that Australia is one of the six leading sources of so-called critical minerals, such as rare-earth elements, cobalt, niobium, antimony, magnesium and tungsten. Cobalt and niobium are the only two minerals identified by the Department for which China is the major supplier and processor. Resources Minister Matt Canavan has highlighted the growth opportunities for Australia in terms of global supply of critical minerals. However, commodity prices and production costs will be the key issues for Australian miners.
