Aluminium is from bauxite.
Queensland and Western Australia
Many applications. For vessel, aircarft, building materials, auto-vehicle, ...etc
There are many eg with copper.
For other information of Australia;
•Top global producer of bauxite, alumina, diamonds [by volume], ilmenite, rutile and zircon; (ahead of the Democratic Republic of Congo and Botswana)
•Second largest producer of zinc ore (after China)
•Third largest producer of iron ore (after China and Brazil), nickel (after the Russian Federation and Canada) and gold (after South Africa and the US)
•Fifth largest producer of aluminum (after the US, Russian Federation, China and Canada) and coal (after China, US, India and Russian Federation)
•Australia has the world's largest resources of low-cost uranium
•Largest exporter of iron ore and black coal in the world. Second largest producer and exporter of gold behind South Africa
