Gold in Queensland

The Australian state of Queensland is perhaps best known for its sun, beaches and livable cities, but like all other Australian states it’s endowed with vast mineral resources and wide open spaces that make it an attractive investment opportunity the world over.

According to the Fraser Institute’s latest survey of mining companies, Queensland ranks ahead of famed Canadian mining jurisdictions such as British Columbia, Ontario and Quebec, with only the province of Saskatchewan besting the sunshine state for investment attractiveness.

Just about anything you can shake a stick at is mined in Queensland, and though it may be best known for its coal exports (which netted AU$36 billion for the state in the 2018 to 2019 financial year), the state is dotted with active mines as well, with a modest collection that produce gold.
