Brief report on the position regarding the resources of iron ore in Australia

When the question of iron ore resources in Australia was being considered in 1937 and 1938, it was stated in departmental reports that information concerning the deposits and reserves of iron ore was incomplete, but that sufficient was available to indicate that Australia possessed very small reserves of iron ore in comparison with those of other continents and that the actual reserves were small and sufficient to last for only 50 to 100 years dependent on the future rate of consumption. This report summarises the current position regarding the resources of iron ore deposits throughout Australia. Two tables are appended detailing the production and export of iron ore for 1926-1944, and iron ore used, 1937-1944.
