Highlights

  • Mining shares rose significantly in FY22.

  • This happened despite the ASX All Ordinaries index reporting a fall during the second half.

  • These shares were mainly boosted by a steep rise in commodity prices during the given fiscal.

The fiscal year 2022 has come to an end. The year witnessed geopolitical tensions, a rise in inflation and interest rates and supply chain disruptions due to the COVID-19 pandemic. While the ASX All Ordinaries witnessed a 4.5% rise in the first half (from 30 June 2021 to 4 January 2022), the index fell 11.05% during the second half (as of 30 June 2022).

However, Australian mining shares had a different story and finished with significant gains. ASX mining shares (the materials segment) constitute nearly 22.5% of the All Ordinaries index. These shares were mainly boosted by a steep rise in commodity prices during the given fiscal period.

On this note, let’s discuss the three best performing ASX All Ordinaries mining shares in FY22.
