Australia has about 46% of the world's estimated low-cost uranium reserves and accounts for about 15% to 20% of global uranium output. The Uranium Mining industry is expected to generate revenue of about $820.8 million in 2012-13, compared with $1.05 billion in 2007-08 (an annualised decline of 4.8%). Industry revenue is expected to expand by about 10.7% in 2012-13 on the back of slightly higher prices (in Australian dollars) and increased production. Net profit before interest and tax is expected to be about $506.3 million and the industry should contribute about 0.1% of Australia's GDP.
Firms in this industry mine uranium bearing ore and extract uranium compounds from the ground using chemical leaching.
