A premier resource-investment destination

Located in the north-east of Australia, Queensland is a premier resource-investment destination with the critical minerals the world needs to tackle climate change and drive advancements in the manufacturing, defence and scientific-research sectors.

On offer are some of the world’s richest mineral-producing areas, with major deposits of copper, lead, zinc, nickel, cobalt, gold, graphite and vanadium, as well as silver, phosphate and rare earths.

Queensland’s critical minerals come with strong foundations to build our ESG credentials, stable and reliable federal and state governments, a growing supply chain and infrastructure links.
