South

Australia

“The New

Mining

Frontier”


South Australia’s Strategic Plan – 2004

‘South Australia

– the preferred mineral investment destination’

• Sets challenging targets for Mineral exploration, production and processing as

proposed by the RTF

• $100 million p.a. investment in mineral exploration by 2007

• $4 billion p.a. from mineral production and processing by 2020

“Mining will provide enormous benefits

to South Australia and this package

says unambiguously: ‘We want and we

welcome mining in this State”

“…we in South Australia are pro-

business, pro-jobs and pro-mining”

South Australian Premier Mike Rann


South Australia – “The New Frontier”

• “….SA to be global resources titan…..” Deloitte Access Economics, April 2011

• “….the deal (opening up of Woomera Prohibited Area (WPA) unlocks more than $35

billion worth of resources and gives the mining industry certainty over

access….” Federal Resources Minister, Martin Ferguson, May 2011

• “….South Australia is about to explode on the global resources stage….”

Richard Asset Management (Hong Kong), May 2011

• >$1.4 billion invested in mineral exploration in SA since 2002

• Minerals sector is now the largest single contributor (35%) to SA’s exports,

• Significant new mine developments, exploration licenses and revitalisation

• From 4 mines in 2002 to 16 in 2010 , and more to come !


Future Proofing

“exclusive process of trying to anticipate future

developments, so that action can be taken to

minimize possible negative consequences,

and to seize opportunities”


Guiding Principles

• Encourage and support mining exploration

• Identify and engage with potential markets

• Maximise opportunities identified from world trends / demands

• Foster collaborative partnerships

• Build a clever and responsive workforce

• Connect and consult with key stakeholders

• Develop supportive policies and approval regimes

• Influence state development plans

• Provide information that empowers investors

• Social license to operate
