South Australian commodities contribute to fundamental infrastructure, products, and supplies. These include iron ore for bridges and railways, limestone for cement, kaolin utilized in cosmetics, uranium for nuclear medicines, and mineral sands like titanium employed in paints, toothpaste, and paper.
