Australia is the largest exporter of gold, iron ore and black coal in the world and the leaders in the mining and mineral processing technology. Sixty per cent of the mining software used in operations around the world is exported from Australia.

Mining is one of the fastest growing industries in central and western NSW. TAFE Western uses two state of the art mining equipment training simulators to enhance the experience for students learning to use a range of mining plant and equipment.
