Pilbara mining jobsRising steel prices and new infrastructure investment indicate that the slackening off of the world`s second-largest economy may be ending.

This is good news for Australian mining companies, especially Rio Tinto, BHP & Fortescue Metals and paves the way for more Pilbara mining jobs and iron ore output.

Bloomberg reports that demand in China, the world`s largest user of iron ore, copper and tin, will rebound through the end of 2013  as infrastructure projects gather pace and users restock.

Data shows China’s estimated steel production and manufacturing figures were all exceeded, and the price of iron ore is also rising, pointing to a strengthening economy after a half year of lackluster performance.

There should be greater demand from China and better prices, resulting in more output and more mining jobs for Australian workers.
