For 150 years mining has changed the lives of all Australians in unexpected and extraordinary ways. Beneath our feet is a treasure trove of unimaginable riches - but this story is about much more than precious minerals and dusty mine shafts.

Mining has sparked waves of mass immigration and ignited political revolt. It has toppled Prime Ministers and wrenched land away from Aboriginal people. It has saved Australia from financial ruin and made people rich in the most unpredictable ways.

The rich history of mining is a battleground that has divided, and yet forged the Australian nation. Land, Money and Power…This is the epic history of mining.
