A colorless, odorless and lighter-than-air inert gas, helium is a key nonrenewable resource used in a variety of industries for its cooling properties. Helium is classified as noncombustible, which means it cannot burn.

  • Helium: will it be the next mineral to boom in Australia?

    Helium is a strategic industrial mineral element of which the occurrence on earth is relatively rare. It has become an increasingly important substance with the advent of super conductors (especially for MRI machines) and is needed for inert gas flooding
