    More than 2,000 people are meeting in a remote town in Australia for one of the world's biggest mining conferences.

    The summit is taking place against a backdrop of falling commodity prices, which has led to concerns over the economy.

    Australia, however, has managed to weather the storm.

    Al Jazeera's Andrew Thomas reports from Kalgoorlie, Australia.
