The Miners

Written by Barry Avery


The Miners traces the Australian mining industry and its turning points of discovery and development, the booms and the busts.

It tells this story through the eyes of those involved in it, from the captains of the industry, managing directors of small and mid-tier companies, the financiers, the service companies and lobbyists.

From exploration to the mining tax and from oil to iron ore, this is a book of dreams, praise, criticisms, anger and laughter.
